OK so I have been dealing with some pretty bad pain that has been steadily increasing just above my elbow and at the beginning of my bicep. I have gone to two orthopedics one stated I had a SLAP Lesion and instructed physical therapt 1 - 2 times per week. The PT is basically biofreeze, Ice and ultrasound on my shoulder as they believe it is a SLAP lesion.
The PT has not improved the pain. Went to seek a second opinion, this doctor simply states its tendonitis and to lay off heavy weights.
I still have not gotten an MRI, one doctor states that it is my coverage (GHI) who will not approve same. I have made the decision to stop direct Bicep work all together as it is to painful. Ive stopped weighted dips, and fear that this issue will never been alleviated.
My question to all is how they have dealt with tennis elbow, golfers elbow. elbow tendonitus or whatever you want to call it. Also your experiences with your specialist and what he or she gave you (if anything) to alleviate the pain.
