WyoWoman BS: Computer-induced tennis elbow-relief? (36) RE: BS: Computer-induced tennis elbow-relief? 24 Jan 02

Massage (Go see Loretta. I hear she's doing massage again. She worked wonders for my very same problem. Tell her I said hello and I love her and i'm glad she's well again. And then let her get to work on your trigger points, even if it hurts). If you can find the nerve that's firing (usually you can feel around with your fingers and find it. The way you know is that nothing on your entire arm hurts worse than that one little spot) and put ice on it -- actually rub an ice cube on it. Acupuncture. I hear there's someone in Casper doing this now. If you need help finding out, I can ask around.

This is why I now use the mouse with my left hand completely. It's been several years and my right elbow and wrist, etc. don't bother me much anymore. But as soon as I start using the mouse with my right hand, bingo! I'm right back where I started.

It sucks, and the suckiest part of it is thinking that you're going to be stuck with this for the rest of your life. This is not so. You can have it go away, but you'll probably need to do several things all at once, including maybe some anti-inflammatories for a while. I used relafen and it made a big difference, along with the massage and acupuncture. Neither of them would work alone -- it took the combination. And experiment with some of the changes in techology suggested above, too. There ARE solutions.

Good luck, kiddo.
