I know I neglected to tell anyone here about this but I was having a lot of pain in my left arm about a month ago (I nearly thought i was having a heart attack aka myocardial infarction yes I wish I had taken med school - I would probably have ended up being a real life " House MD" ) any how i thought I could be clever and took a week off - the pain subsided but NOT that much so I figured I should start working through it BAD MOVE. Cheryl wasn't feeling well and she didn't want to go to the doctor's alone so I had already decided I was going to take her to the doctor on Friday (I decided to start lifting weights again the Wednesday night (2 days prior)Well Thursday night my arms hurt SO BAD it kept waking me up and so I asked the doctor (my GP had a funny sense of humour) so he examines my arms and then holds onto them and asks me if it hurt (of course I say NO ) the n he squeezes them until I nearly went through the ceiling. "Oh you have tennis elbow I don't want you lifting weights for 2 weeks and put this ointment on your elbows " (it hurt enough just trying to rub the crap in LOL - well not really at the tine at least NOT for me). I think I am going to start to use my tennis elbow brace I had from when I first got tennis elbow from KARATE.
All I know is that the pain was hideous (I had forgotten how bad it was - the only bad thing was the detraining as far as my upper body strength was concerned not good, Have a good weekend ,
