Elbow Bursitis and Hand

A year or so ago I got elbow bursitis. Anti-inflamatory drugs got the swelling to go down but after that I didn't do much rehab. so every week when I do the lawn and all of that I can feel the soreness and pain in the elbow. A few times it feels like it kind of numbs the hand or that nerve from the sore area to the hand just tires the hand out. Do you think the nerve is pinched now or is that just an after effect?

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.'

'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.
