Aaaargh, I’m so mad. I’ve been lifting weights and swimming for about seven months now. This is because I can’t run or bike…because of my F-ing knees and ankles.
So…I go slowly. I increase gradually. Then BAM. F-ing tendonitis in my right elbow.
I don’t think swimming and lifting caused it per se. A week and a half ago, I rented a huge hedge trimmer. I could barely hold the thing at the height necessary. But, a week later…bam. And, of course, I use my right arm for…everything. Naturally, everything exacerbates (hee hee…right arm…exacerbate) it, especially using a mouse. A mouse! I also play guitar, do tons of yard work, etc.
Doctor says ice, advil, and rest for three weeks. If that works, awesome. It’s only three weeks.
But every other F-ing joint in my body is chronically injured with no end in sight, gee, wtf not my elbow?
How 'bout you? I need some hope here.
