IWrist tendonitis or tennis elbow, I don't know if mine are related

by Elizabeth
(Mobile, AL, USA)



About 1 1/2 months ago, I was having tingling in my arm. Went to my internal medicine doc. He told me I had tendonitis in my wrist. Told me to wear a brace that went around my wrist and about 8" above my wrist.

I wore the brace for about a week.

I injured my knee at work.

Subsequently, I had to use crutches for a little over a month. I did not wear my wrist brace continuously. I now have what I think is tennis elbow.

Could this be related?

It surely is related Elizabeth.

I'm curious how accurate the wrist tendonitis diagnosis is. And, I wouldn't expect wrist braces to help much anyway.

Suddenly being on crutches a lot can certainly have irritated your Pain Causing Dynamic.

And, it's entirely possible to have Wrist Tendonitis -AND- Tennis Elbow.

It's really all the same dynamic, it just matters where it shows up the most. The worse things get, the broader an area you're going to feel it.

Questions:

1. Where exactly -was- the pain?

2. Where exactly is it now. Where was the tingling?

3. Please describe your symptoms in as great a detail as possible.

4. How long has all this been going on?

5. Age.

6. Overall health.

7. Overall activity level.
