Went to my GP 3 months ago with pain in my elbow and was referred to an osteopath. Her initial diagnosis was tendonitis but then changed it to a muscular problem. She referred me to someone else who over the last month has changed the diagnosis each time I've seen her: - a. complication from previous dislocated shoulder, b. hyper-mobility in joint, c. dislocated thumb, c. deep tissue immobility etc. The latest remedy is to continue wearing an elbow support, keep it rested and drink an infusion of termeric and root ginger. 2 weeks later and no change; still can't lift a bag of shopping or grip a tea mug without wanting to cry like a girl. Any thoughts? And before anyone asks, it's my left (non-wnaking) elbow that's causing the problem.
