OUCH!

Bruised (or something) my left elbow. Gotten to the point where putting any kind of pressure on it just plain hurts.

Don't remember banging it, but that doesn't mean I didn’t. And it seems to be getting WORSE. Time for some Advil or tylenol I think.

Ah, man, I went thru that about a year ago. As much as I hate to say this, it could also be arthritis. Eat bananas!

Yeah. The thought had occurred to me that it could be something else.

Maybe it is bursitis (tennis elbow - the cartilage get damaged somehow leaks some of that nice fluid out - the stuff that lets your bones move smoothly over each other). I had that once. I could bring my arm up to my shoulder but not stretch it out, if I remember correctly - something weird like that. I think carrying around heavy uni books or driving brought it on. It has stayed good ever since, thankfully. I just rubbed it with my lavender lotion, which works wonders. Any of those smelly rubs would do the same thing eg Deep Heat or Tiger Balm. You could take glucosamine but just make sure it has chrondoitin in it. Or you could just go and catch you own shark (I have images of you wrestling a shark flashing through my head*) and eat it's fin! (And skeleton, as that is made of cartilage, too). Might was well eat the whole thing! I have heard that green leafy vegetables have it in, but you might have to eat them raw (eg baby spinach etc in a salad, or better blend some in with bananas etc in the morning for a health drink).

*Man eats shark

Uh nope. Not man-handling any sharks. *laughs*

But I might try a heating pad wrapped around it for a bit. I'm currently out of Deep Heating rub.

It hasn't backed off a bit all day. I'll see to the heating pad. Maybe that will knock it back a bit.

Oh yeah, a heating pad. Good thinking!

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have helped much. It did however, keep me from waking up every time I moved.

Plus it helped keep me warm. Finally had our cold-snap.

Yep! It happens when you get over 40. Right now my ankle is hurting and I did NOTHING to it. It's just worn out, I guess.

Bleh. Thanks a lot...

*laughs* I know it is true. Just muckin' about.

It might be your lower back. A lot of my problems seem to stem from that, compression and the like, but the back doesn't hurt most of the time, just the other bits.
