I have reacurring locking in my left elbow which has been happening for 2 years now. I havent had any trauma to it so so not know why it started to lock. Nothing specific makes it lock it just happens very randomly. I have had an MRI scan and a CT scan on the elbow both came back clear. I also had a key hole exploratory operation on it with nothing found and yet it continues to lock and hurt when it does so.
Any idea what it could be would be most appreciated?
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on the situation. Since the imaging studies have come back normal, structural issues are practically ruled out and one may consider looking at neuro-muscular causes. It would be best to have this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
