Just finished roofing the garage on the new house I`m building for my son. My elbow is on fire again. I started having joint problems this summer after a softball tournament in Ohio. Can't seem to get it to go away now. I'll be fifty five next May. Guess it's time to really retire to something easier. I bet the doctor will say I am getting rheamotiod arthritus. Does anyone have any potions save for WD 40 that would help me out? I heard Celebrex ain't good for you.

Hilltopper.....sounds like you have Tendinitis to me commonly called tennis elbow (micro tendon tears that inflame and rub on the bones in you arm) I have been battling it for almost 6 years...started off with cortozone shots they help but dont last long for some people. like les says the only real cure is not to use it till it heals only problem is take months to heal then when you do start using it again the scar tissue starts rubbing and here you go again.....I have taken ever kind of therpy and pill they make...celebrix did'nt work for me....Last year I went to a new doc and he had me going in 2 days..with a combo of cortizone shot,exercise and a pill they just came out with named ( BEXTRA )..I have not had any pain since...I exercise 15 mins a day (doc will give you a paper with proper exer. )and only took the Bextra for 3 weeks...I keep a supply of it just it case it comes back. If you have a severe case like i have I highly recommend you try this....
I know how you really hurts....

Best wishes

Well, I got almost 2 years on ya and my elbow never stops hurting. Tendinitis, I suspect. Doctor tells me the only way that'll go away is to stop using it. Pretty hard when yer right handed and that's the one that hurts.

Glucosamine! My Mama swears by it. Go get some from Walmart, it's pretty cheap if you get the house brand. Sorry you feel sore, know how it is. Mama says if she took it earlier in life, it would have done more for her for now.

Glucosamine Sulfate and Glucosamine Chonatin(sp) are diet supplements that help rebuild cartilage. My doctor told me that it may take up to 3 mons. to see any good. It helped me in 2 weeks. Take it every morning and night. I don't thank it will help tennis elbow. It doen't help mine. The pain in my shoulder and arm were almost unbearable before glucosamine.

Glucosamine is wonderful.
I dont know if my knees and I would survive without it.
It does actully rebuild lost cartiledge;
BUT if you stop taking it you lose it again.
So it is a lifetime commitment,
no taste, no after effects and not expensive.
I reccomend it highly.

I got golfers elbow this year,
that is when the outside of your elbow joint hurts.
I was taking my elderly neighbor getting her into and out of her wheelchair daily.
Somehow the way I was handleing the wheel chair did the damage.
She is now bedridden and my elbow has healed.
