I have been experiencing the EXACT same problem for the EXACT same amount of time. I was wondering if you know how you might think you injured it? I know my problem started right after I spent a day raking in the yard doing spring clean-up. I figured all that repetetive motion caused inflamation and hence tendonitis. Anyways…I know what your going through, it has been very frustrating dealing with it. I currently take 6 Flameout capsules a day maybe more might help. Aside from the icing regularly, I suppose, and I hope, time will take care of it. In the meantime, just make adjustments and work around it. [/quote]
I’ve speculated what exercises might have injured it, but i think it more had to do with being stupid. I started cutting in Jan, and was doing well. Lost about 10 pounds, and just got carried away and kept working out 3 months straight without a break. One day it just started hurting out of the blue.
From what I’ve heard, the best way to take care of it is, ice/heat, stretching, massage(and cross tendon massage), and rest. I think it does help to workout a little to keep blood pumping in there. But I think it’s just one of those injuries that takes a long time to heal, depending on each persons ability to heal.
I’m personally trying to stay away from prescription meds or anythign like that which could impede healing. My pain isn’t too bad, just an annoyance. But I like lifting pain free and wouldn’t have it any other way.
I would also add a glucosamine/chon supplement daily for help the repair of ligaments/tendons/muscles. I’m taking Animal Flex right now.
I’ve definately been making progress…albeit slow progress. Used to hurt when I would wash my hair or itch my stomach(right on the tendon), but that pain is subsiding, as well as the pain in the bone.
Just trying to find a nice equillibrium while working out and trying not to aggrevate/slow down healing time for my elbow.
