Customer Question

Today I noticed what seemed to be a bone chip at the end of my elbow. Not painful as I rubbed it a bit. Just seemed like a floating chip. 45 minutes later a hard bump about the size of a Cherry tomato. Iced it down and it reduced 30-40%. What's' up!
Thank you.

Most likely this is a bursitis.
It is a capsule that fills with fluid.
You need to go have your doctor examine this...and it might need drainage.
Using motrin in the interim is OK.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
