For the past year or so, I have been getting a cyclic pain and stiffness in one of my elbows and forearm that comes and stays for 24-48 hours and comes back in 7-14 days in the same cycle. This all started when I had a similar recurring pain in my shoulder through to my upper arm to my elbow, and the top of my arm and elbow would get stiff. Okay, the physcian said it was arthritis just in my rotary cuff. So, now, I just have a slight pain in my rotary cuff when I lay on it. Also, in recent weeks, I have the same kind of cycle with just the elbow stiffness and pain on the outer side of my forearm. Is it still arthritis, and is it a type of arthritis?
