Retired golfer - wrist tendonitis pain in both wrists along with high blood pressure and atrial fibrilation
64 years old male, retired, active, good health. High blood presure medicated for ten years. First week of January blood pressure spiked and cardioligst found A Fib. Actively treating the heart issue. At the same time I started experiencing forearm, wrist and hand pain. Xrays show no arthritis.
Pain seems to radiate from wrist to forearm and hand, top and bottom and underside pain on thumb pad. Pain and stiffness worst in the morning after sleep.
Light exercise and joint movement seems to clear stiffness and pain. I do play golf. I can go to the driving range and not be able to swing and hold the club. After some time the joint loosens up and pain subsides enough to play. This seems contrary to tennis elbow I experienced years ago while playing golf. That form of tendinitis required no activity for weeks. This current problem is in both left and right wrist and seems to improve with activity?
First off, if you have high blood pressure history and concurrent onset of increased blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, and tendonitis symptoms, you are magnesium deficient. Or at least, you may want to take a serious look at the role Magnesium plays with those.
Read this page on Atrial Fibrillation Cause
It's likely you're Vitamin D deficient too. That's easy to get checked for and get the levels up.
Both Magnesium and Vitamin D are CHEAP and incredibly beneficial.
As you describe it, it's highly likely much of your Tendonitis symptoms are due to Magnesium deficiency too.
that, you've had decades of Pain Causing Dynamic
and slowly progressive Tendonitis
dynamic, so it wouldn't be a surprise if you do have some actual Tendonitis issue.
Which I suspect is more about the downsides of muscle and connective tissue being TOO TIGHT for too long.
Definitely read about the magnesium/heart connection with the link above.
You could also benefit either from 'The Tennis Elbow Treatment That Works' DVD as seen up to the right, or from my new Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook
. (I lean towards the Wrist Tendonitis ebook from your description of symptoms.)Questions:
1. What are you using to control your high blood pressure?
2. Are you on Statins?
3. Other than golf, what do you do with your hands?
4. How are you treating the atrial fibrilations?
5. Anything else that would be interesting or useful for me to know? ----------------------
