Elbow

Dear Doc

It has been a month now and my elbow is paining and it affects me a lot at work, as I' m using my right hand a lot. I also feel a pain on my shoulder. Could this be arthritis? I' m 37 years and a very health person.

Please help

Dear mondes
It could be tennis elbow and this usually happens when you do some sort of activity where the elbow gets 'overused". I you are involved in sports or carrying heavy things, try to stop for a little while and see whether it gets better. You can also try some anti-inflammatory drugs like Voltaren, Brufen etc.
