unexplained bruising, nausated, and pain in elbow
Okay, I am really nausated (probably not spelt right but i dont' care right now). I have had pain in my elbow when i bend it for about two weeks now. About a week ago i noticed a bruise on my arm. Now I just took a shower and i counted over 15 bruises on my body. I have no idea how I got them. I am only 20 years old and I am really nervous about it. And NO ONE is hitting me incase you are wondering. Is there anything i should do? drink? take more vitamins??

Hi,

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.
