Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Some 2 months ago I did some extensive garden work over a weekend involving chainsaw and wood shredder. The following day my elbow was hurting but I assumed that was the least I should expect. Unfortunately, over 2 months on, the pain is still there (every day), especially noticeable when I reach out or lift (even small light objects). I have not been taking any painkillers as I assumed it would settle on its own, and I tend to take medication only when necessary. Now, I did some more garden work yesterday - much lighter (mowing the lawn and some minor cutting), but I noticed that while cutting my elbow would hurt more. And this morning my entire right arm is extremely sore - mostly the albow of course, but also my wrist and shoulder, all the way up the riht side of my neck. What should I do to prevent furtheer deterioration, and speed up recovery please?
P.S. On moving my arm at the moment it feels like a "trapped nerve" down my arm below the elbow, and up in my neck and shoulder.
