What should I do for right elbow pain that I only get when working out my triceps? Sometimes I also get the pain when sweeping at work. Last Monday 3/17 worked out chest/ triceps, from 4:30-5:30. By 7pm felt a burning sensation inside right elbow. Always have elbow pain when working out my triceps, never on sides of elbows always near the tip of elbow.
What should I do? Should I get it checked out by a doctor? If I should get it looked at, What type of doctor should I see?
Currently have no insurance. What can happen if I do nothing?View Thread
Can someone can tell me what I have? Lately while at work when asked to sweep the front counter and grill area, I feel pain in the outside of my elbow. I mostly feel it when sweeping and sometimes now I feel it when my arm is totally straight. I have the pain in my right elbow just above the crease on left side of elbow joint, and is tender(pain) to touch Should I go get this checked out? Who should I see, PCP? Currently no insurance or PCP. Only have quick care at my doctor's office so I see a different doctor each time I go there or can use Walgreens.View Thread
Can someone can tell me what I have? I work for a local McDonald's. Lately while at work when asked to sweep &mop the front counter and grill area, I feel pain in the outside of my elbow. I mostly feel it when sweeping. Yesterday I also felt pain when I would carry the ice bucket in my right hand as I am right handed and feels weird to carry it in left hand.
Should I go get this checked out? Who should I see, PCP? Currently no insurance or PCP. my job can't find out how to get me enrolled since I had it previously through the other McDonald's I worked at. Only go to quick care at my doctor's office so I see a different doctor each time I go there.View Thread
No I was not hurt at work, just occasionaly I feel pain in the outside of my elbow when either sweeping the floor really good or sometimes when carrying the ice bucket from the ice machine in the back to the front.View Thread
I have had scoliosis since 1994. One day when I came home from the school bus my mom noticed my neck was really messed up. My left ear was pratically touching my left shoulder. She immediately took me to the family chiropractor and they did xrays on my neck/back as well as straightened out my neck. After taking the xrays we found out I had scoliosis. I then went to the chiropractor for 2-3 times a week for 2-3 months for my back. They did manipulations on my back, pushed/pulled on my legs to correct the innequality and I would also lay on a machine that had rollers inside that would go up/down my back. I still have a leg length innequality where my right leg is appx. 2 inches longer than my left leg.Should I be getting this checked every few years or be doing nothing? I have done nothing since the 2-3 months in 1994.
Once in a while I will get pain in my left thigh where it hurts to stand, usually I get this at work like yesterday while unloading the truck which is about 8-9 carts of 36-46LBS. boxes. Like yesterday the pain seemed to be gone after a hour after work which I left at noon when done with the truck which i don't start until it shows up on our lot. Any ideas on what could be causing this?View Thread
the last time I saw a MD was last summer July 7, 2009 for a plugged right ear which turned out to be an ear infection(took antibiotics-ammoxicillion and had ear drops for this one), then July 7, 2009 for a recheck on the right ear then about a week later for a plugged left ear, that time they just cleaned out the ear with hydrogen peroxide and water mixed together in a syringe type bottle. each time I went it was to the Quick Care we have at our doctor office, and each time I saw a different doctor, all who were internal medicine doctors, which is what you usually get. Each Time I went they took me into a room where they weighed me, took temperature, and blood pressure, Both second time and third time the doctor told me my blood pressure was a little high (didn't have to do anything for that), and then took me into another room where the doc would come in and check my ears. I got these from swimming in my best friend's neighbors pool. My friend thought I got them because they don't take very good care of the PH level, etc.
I haven't had a real checkup since my physical for 9th grade and last summer is the last time I saw a real doctor for anything since the physical. Since I started College fall of 1999, I didn't have insurance until, my fifth job at Channahon, IL McDonalds, which at first they did not have benefits for crew, only managers until now, which I have had benefits for more than a year, and is $44 a paycheck.View Thread
