I have been experiencing pain with my right elbow for many days now. It started two weeks ago when I waited for almost an hour to meet my daughter at school, holding a heavy paper bag with my right hand with stuff inside it. From that day on, I started to feel the pain and it is getting worse everyday. I feel that it's the "funny bone" and the joints that connect it that are swollen.
I asked G about my swollen elbow. I am not sure though about this pain, but with all the symptoms I've got, it is a clear sign that I'm having a bursitis, a non particular form of rheumatism. Bursitis needs medical attention giving many options like non surgical and surgical treatment. For non surgical treatment, changes of activity, elbow pads and medications are needed. While for surgical treatment, surgical procedure is needed to completely heal the elbow.
Now I am irritated and can't stay long in front of PC despite the pads that I put in my elbow. I also use stress ball to exercise my hands and closing my fist hurts me even more. Maybe, the best treatment is to rest my hands for a while now. I can still stay online but only for a limited time.
