Hi, I am a casual badminton and squash player who like to play at least twice a week with friends.
Around 6-7 month ago, I had tripped on a slippery floor at my home and fell with all the body weight on my right elbow. The doctor gave me some pain killers and Voren Gel(diclofenac), I felt better after a week or so and starting playing Badminton after 2 weeks. However while playing I could still feel some pain in my elbow and stiffness & heat after the game otherwise the elbow was okay.
Within few weeks, the pain increased while playing and after about 3 weeks accidently I fell in the court while playing and this time agin hitting my wrist & same elbow on ground. There was some swelling on the lower arm below the elbow and it used to pain a lot when I moved the fingers or clinch my fist.
I went back to the doctor and he said that I should give the elbow total rest and not engage in any phyiscal activity such as badminton.
Since then I have stopped playing but the pain doesn't seem to go. There is a slight discomfort when I a try to expand my fingers apart or any activity that requires me to twist my wrist (eg.. using a screw driver).
I can feel pain when I press the both of V on my elbow (outer side of right hand). I had been hoping the body will recover with time since I am not doing any strenuous physical activity but the pain doesn't seem to recede.
