Ok. I know my opinions differ from some guys and gals on here but, I could really use some help... A while back I was doin a couple sets of "21's" with 145, which wasn't out of the ordinary btw, I started feeling a "burning" in the pit of my elbow on my right arm. I took a couple of weeks off thinkin' that I may have pulled something. Now... almost six months later... I broke down and all but stopped working out and have endured 3 dr's giving me different diagnosis's and in the last 2 months, 2 different surgery's with no relief! Still have the same symptoms! Sharp, stinging, burning pain in the pit of my elbow along with throbbing pain all the time! Somebody help!!!
Tried the elbow sleeves. No relief. Havent been in the gym in almost 6 months. Problem persists. Even lifting things like a gallon of milk. (roughly 12 pounds) Ruled out tendonitis. All mri's came back clean for any kind of swelling associated with any tendonal or muscular problem... Dr. just put me on Lyrica. A drug meant for overactive nerve syndromes. I DONT WANT DRUGS THAT DONT WORK!!!
My girl has her master's in Occupational Therapy and she is also an RN, so I'll try to ask her about it later tonight and give you her input.
Huh? Where did I say anything about an ankle injury? Are you implying that the ankle is the only place in the body that has syndesmoses? A syndesmosis is a moveable ligamentous attachment of two bones...ie, the interosseus membrane of the arm. Often times, repetitive heavy lifting (like bench press and bentover rows) can injure the interosseus membrane of the forearm near the elbow. Continued use aggravates the injury and makes it worse. See pic below...
One can also get synchondrosis injuries in joints.
