OT - but I really hurt my elbow.

Funny thing is I have no idea how.

But my elbow is really swollen and it hurts up the shoulder way and my fingers are less nimble.

Strange huh?

I don't think I even hit it wrong at all.

2. Thanks AP. No bug bit for sure.

May be arthritic. If I don't see improvement by the end of day tomorrow, I will go see doc.

Sea tells me she got fluid on hers. That could be it as well. Strange thing though this is. Haha.

7. Arthritis can cause swelling, good to hear cannot be bug bite, those critters may be small

It the bite can alter the playing field on larger targets...

8. It could be bursitis, too. You don't have to have hit your elbow to get that. nt

10. Yep, there's a bursa (sac) filled with fluid at the tip of your elbow, and it can get

inflamed and fill with more fluid and hurt like the dickens. My mom had it in her shoulder, but it can happen at most any joint. Go to this website and see if the symptoms fit:

13. I hope

your elbow feels better soon. Yes, get it checked out by a DR if it lasts more than a day or 2.
