I found this forum while googling some symptoms and found it to be full of information.
I have muscle tenderness (tender to the touch and pressure) on the outside of both of my elbows - its in what I believe are the biceps (lower parts close to my elbow joint) and brachioradialis muscles.
At first I the pain/tenderness was only on my left arm and I thought it was from too much exercise so I stopped for the past month or more. The pain went away but tenderness remained. Then I developed the same tenderness on my right side, so I am not sure if this is injury related.
I also thought massage in case of sore muscles - but continuous pressure from massage only made the muscles more tender. The only thing that seems to help are ice packs.
I know I don't have an autoimmune disorder since I had a bloodtest for these earlier this year (for an unrelated condition) and the results were negative. I've been reading a lot about myositis and was wondering about inflammation, B12, magnisium deficiencies and so on.
I went to the doctor and waved me away with a prescrption for an anti-inflammatory just in case. Unless I'm screaming in pain or had a major accident, they don't consider this a serious issue. Should I try taking the prescription?
Otherwise, I am healthy 25 year old, take all my vitamins, so on. Thanks for any help.
