Feeling better, I decided to crochet a hat last night and here I am suffering again. The pain is so bad that I cant lift my arm sometimes. Even though I can lift a heavy object with hardly any pain at all, I can't do a simple task of picking up the coffee pot, pour the laundry soap or even at times, texting. Sometimes the pain is so bad it keeps me up at night. I cant even lift it to without picking it up and lifting with my other arm. My arm throbs. Ibuprofen has become a drug habit.
I read where ice will help with tennis elbow. I had homemade ice packs in the freezer but hated having to sit still while holding or balancing it on my arm. That's when I decided to create some sort of ice pack that would fit around my arm, triggering the source of pain than radiates down my arm. And of course, crocheting was my answer at the moment. I needed something quick so I grabbed a ball of cotton yarn and began to crochet in agony.
What do you think? Does anyone have any more suggestions? I open for any opinions or help. Has anyone ever had tennis elbow? How long did it last and how did you deal with it?
