Four weeks ago I had a sudden onset of pain in my elbow. The pain is in the muscle as well as in the bone. I have seen 7 doctors (1 GP, 3 orothopedics, 1 ER surgeon, 1 ER Internist, 1 Neurologist) and still am no better. The Xrays, bloodwork (no clot) and MRI (no infection, just some swelling)were all normal.
I was given 2 shots of cortisone 8 days ago, which did not help. Following the injection I had muscle numbness for 4 days. I now have a very dark, almost black, bruise at one of the injection sites and it has gone somewhat hard.
I was referred to a neurologist today who tested my nerves and concluded they were normal.
The pain is really bad. Does anyone have any suggestions?
