Pain in Elbow and Wrist.

Hey guys, just recently when I was playing the drums I was doing a roll around the drum kit and I felt a tingling sensation occur in my left elbow, only when I would do the roll or tense up my elbow would I feel this. Now I have a pain in my left elbow every time I tense up my arm. I'm sure it has something to do with that burning sensation I felt while drumming. Also my wrist on my right hand aches all the time, when I go to do push ups you can forget about it because any weight on the wrist just hurts too much. Any ideas as to whats going on? I hope it's not carple tunnel.

Hi,

What is your age? Since when have you noticed these symptoms? What work do you
do? Does it involve a lot of movement or rotation at the elbow joint or constant
pressure on the elbow for long hours? Is the swelling on the inside or outside
of your elbow joint? Do you remember  any history of trauma or injury to the
site?

This could be - tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, olecranon bursitis or synovial
cyst of the elbow joint.

'Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful
and tender. It's a condition that is commonly associated with playing tennis,
though the injury can happen to almost anybody.
The condition is more formally known as lateral epicondylitis ("inflammation to
the outside elbow bone"), lateral epicondylosis, or simply lateral elbow pain.'

and

'Golfer's elbow — also known as medial epicondylitis — is similar to tennis
elbow. But it occurs on the inside — rather than the outside — of your elbow.'

'Olecranon bursitis is inflammation of the bursa overlying the olecranon process
at the proximal aspect of the ulna. The bursa is located between the ulna and
the skin at the posterior tip of the elbow.'

It would be advisable to consult your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis and to
plan the further management.

Let us know if you need any other information and post us about how you are
doing.

Regards.
