Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Is your elbow swollen as well?
Is it on the side of elbow or center or back of elbow?
How old are you?
Thanks for the details
You are suffering from inflammation of the extensor tendons at elbow
This is also called Tennis elbow
You need to take Ibuprofen and have physiotherapy
If that does not work then you will need a local steroid injection
Please do let me know if you have any other question
If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
You can use it as much as you comfortably can
With use of Ibuprofen and Physiotherapy you will be able to function more swiftly without pain
It can improve within a couple of weeks on treatment
Yes mostly it does go away but can recur as well occasionally
You are welcome
