Since dealing with Tendonitis (or tendinitis) has become so central to my workign out, I figured I'd retitle my thread sort of and start afresh.
Here's a link to my our journal for those interested
Anyway, some background...
I've been working out in earnest for about a year now. About 5 months in, I must have overdone something and wound up with tennis elbow in my left elbow. Coincidentally, I do play tennis, but I'm right handed, and it really doesn't seem to have anything to do with my condition. My son on the other hand is a budding Tennis fiend, but that's another story...
Tendonitis is typically brought on by intense overuse, especially when you haven't worked slowly up to your level of intensity. It's mainly manifested (for me) as pain in the outer elbow, radiating into my forearm, wrist and even fingers. Golfer's elbow starts on the inner elbow, thankfully I only have one kind of tendinitis. It severely effects my grip. In the morning, I wake up with my arm feeling painfully stiff. I hate it. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
More later... including "The Shot"...
