Hello
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Hello,
It’s my first priority to serve you.
Thanks for providing more information.

Well as you describe possibly it's Tennis elbow.

Treatment usually involves decreasing the use of the arm slightly,cool compresses with ice packs and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen(advil) 400-600 mg or naproxen (aleve) alternately with Tylenol.

Use a elbow brace/strap.

Physical therapy can be helpful.

If swelling and tenderness and pain are getting worse over the time then you need to undergo X-ray/MRI and a clinical examination by Orthopedist for further evaluation and management.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.
Thanks.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
