I have pain in my elbow that affects my hand, fingers and forearm. Had an EMG and I have Ulnar Nerve Damage. I get pain, muscle weakness and tingling. Have you have a EMG/nerve conduction study?

Weakness that is progressive is more worriesome than the pain. An EMG is a good call to check for any potential nerve damage that might be there. If you don't have insurance check out the no insurance/low income thread that is stickied in the general forum.

Marilyn,

Nice to hear from you. All my rheumatoid tests came back as normal so i will have to live with the back pain. My tennis elbow has gotten so painful i can no longer lift a gallon of milk mostly from the severe pain. Anytime i do any house hold chores it hurts for the next few days, throbbing, very swollen i am afraid it will get so bad i will not be able use my elbows.

I talk to a lawyer about disability, i have to get him some info. I have no family, nearby and the same for friends. But i am pushing on.

Enough about me, how are you

Julie,

You are not alone, we are here for you always. I know it's not the same as having family nearby, but we care for and support you.

I know you do not want drugs, but unfortunately with fibro there is really nothing they can do. We can do some things to help ourselves, but meds are so helpful in helping us lead a functional life. I hope you can get to a dr to get the attention you need. HUGS

I have this in both elbows.. one elbow much worse than the other.

The shots didn't work less than 3 days..

I went through Physical therapy too..

And that didn't work either.

I'm on 800mg Ibuprofen 3 times a day..

until my stomach gets tired of it I guess. I think it's related to my Lyme's disease..
