    Anyone ever experience "Tennis Elbow" in BOTH Arms?

    IGF-1 Lr3 Bulk Special!!!!
    I have had Tennis Elbow many many times over the years, But I have to say this is the very first time I have ever had it in both Elbows!! They both hurt like Hell, the right slightly more then the left.

    Anyone else ever get Tennis Elbow in both elbows at the same damn time? I know there aint shit you can do for them either other then rest rest rest, unless someone here knows of some type of remedy that speeds up recovery?? If so please post it!

    I have had them in both arms before and I sat in my recliner with an ice bag on each elbow and felt stupid as hell when people came over. I just iced them everyday at least once. I don't know if you've ever iced your elbows, but until you get used to the cold, it actually hurts. Other than that, just take 500mg of ibuprofen for the inflammation and then I always put icy hot on my elbows on bench day to prevent anymore of this shit

    Well for 3 years I thought I had tennis elbow.... Couldnt do any thing from presses to extensions and sometimes even pulling.. Went and got an MRI and I actually have Triceps Tendonitis.... also multiple tears 3mm in size on my triceps tendon.... All he could do was give me a cortizone shot and its been "ok" but I still have to wear a wrap... Btw i went to an ortho who specializes in High level athletes, NFL, MLB, etc.... Basically what i'm sayin bro is it could be worse... All these years I thought it was lateral epicondylitis (tech term) and it was something else... He was the only guy I could get to MRI it... Most docs were like, "i dont see any reason to give you an MRI, you look fine to me" lol.. Just food for thought.

    thats funny i have it bad right now in my right elbow, 600 mg advil 3 times a day, ice before bed and rest is the only fix , if u want 2 lessen the pain, say for work, they make a band that gos on the forearm. It makes ur tendons pull from were ever u place it . It is amazing for pain relief.

    Yep, got it in both right now from going to heavy on skull crushers. My right almost healed but left is still a little tender. Nothing you can do about it but wait for it to heal. I can't do any tricep exercises except for kick backs which it doesn't hurt at all and I will let it heal completely before trying to put some serious weight on it.

    There are devices that I believe called "scanners" they were developed by the Russians to help heal their astronauts. They send magnetic waves into your injured area. It reduces swelling, inflamation and increases blood flow to that area. You have to be trained on how to use them but I bet a chiropractor or someone in your neck of the woods would have one. My cousin is the Chiropracter for the Jazz and he has one and it's crazy how it works. A former Jazz player Matt Harpring could hardly play without getting his knees scanned because of his severe tendinitis.

    I've had it in both but never the same time... can't imagine that. Not much to do either, at least not for me besides Ibuprofen. Hadn't heard about the cool Russian astronaut toys when I had it... bummer for me, lol!~

    Mainly just gotta ride it out

    Certainly wish I had something like this available to me at all times, I have two bum ass knees as well and ill bet this might help them as well, cause my knees ache like Hell almost always!

    Its amazing what Magnatism can do, you think if i rub two magnets on opposite ends of my elbows it will help,lmao or maybe ill tape two magnets to each side of my elbows and see how it goes,lol, seriously though i know they sell alot of magnetic type of things just for joints, so i would imagine their has to be some truth to the power of magnatism and healing

    Presser - I have had both elbows jacked up and I have been using DMSO nightly and wear a copper fit sleeve during the day. I also wear a band on my elbow when I lift, but when you take it off be ready for some pain. What is strange is that I have very little pain when I do chest or tris but when I start to work on bi's I am screwed. Cannot do any weight or they feel like the ligaments are tearing off the bone.

    Good luck brother and keep us informed.

    Hit Bis and Tris last night and the same thing happened. Got a few curls in and then elbow pain was unreal. Tris were not a problem. DMSO last night and wearing my sleeve today. Feels some better.

    How are you feeling Presser?

    I am mechanic so the twisting of wrist and elbow make it hard to heal. Had it in both at same time more than once. I get on outer side where we used to pig each other in middle school. Turn door knob is good test
    I avoid turning dumbbells when curling. Band helps. I got dr Scholls massager and rub away up biceps and down wrist. Mine healed good this lastime I couldn't even grab phone on night table to shut off alarm. I tried osta, lgd, cissis, everything it healed was doing igf next. My arms suffered had it for 2 years off and on 6 months straight once. I now avoid dumbbell presses on bench, flipping them up for incline caused it bad one time.

    I also take the joint supplements osteobiflex triple strength dollar gen brand I take it daily year round haven't had any problems and did some deca and the increase in water retention helped. My knee, wrist, shoulder,both elbows kill me also have L4,L5 disc and C5,C6 that can cause problems. Dead lifts make me dead. I really think the Sarms help and Cissis did something for sure.

    Brother, I understand where you are coming from. No way that I can bend down to do deads anymore. I just do what I can and keep on killing it. Stay strong brother!!

    I love those Copper Fit sleeves. I've used them on knees and elbows both with good success. They are only about $10 at Wal-Mart. They keep them with the "As seen on TV" stuff.

    I love mine. I remember when I was a kid, that a lot of the old times wore copper brackets on each wrist. They swore by them and would not take them off. I don't know the science behind the use, but as long as it work, it doesn't really matter.

    For $10, I'll give them a shot, both elbows are shot on me! Am trying dmso now, just started it, hoping I can rehab them soon, I always wondered if they worked

    Try Dr Scholls massager increases blood to flow and stimulates healing by moving inflammatory's away from fibers. Cycling with ice every night. Ice then massager I did at night. Use band during day I used ace bandage wrap especially during lifting. Also donating blood I believe helps remove inflammation from blood and thin our blood and allows it flow and prevents calcium and iron deposits from forming at injury. My Dr told me this and it helps for me. Sometimes our pains or from gout as well, lowering uric acid does wonders. I get symptoms at bottoms of feet from big toe to heal in arch of foot and other joints and tendons flare up around same time. I think it all related we all consume lots of protein which is linked to gout. I cut my protein donate blood and avoid turning wrist especially with dumbbells at least until healed 100%. Most of my problems are all related to the strain I put on my body working out even when hurt. I for past ten years have never skipped a week unless on a vacation and still always find a gym to get a couple days in. Before that I drank and got high so worked out seasonal always for spring and summer. I am now 10 years sober in recovery of mind altering substances. I don't get sick much and when I do I push thru it my wife and kids know if I miss my workout then I am sick bad. This becomes the issue of tendinitis inflammation of tears in our tendons that became inflamed because we not allowing to heal and working out again. I laid off things that bother them and adjusted my workouts to maintain muscle while letting them heal. Did all PT stretching and exercises myself Dr printed out for me and showed me what to do. I did my research and did what I mentioned. Being a mechanic just my job puts alot of strain not to mention my workouts. I was desperate ostarine and lgd did wonders. Lgd is being research for hip replacement to stimulate heal and strength in joint of hip afterwards. Alot of hip replacement patients health deteriorates in older groups from slow healing. I used them without any side effects with my trt and healed up 100%. I have carpal tunnel as well. The thumb wrist wrap to hold thumb from clinching helps with that. I am 40 these things flared up around 37 and we're worst than ever. Right now I am good but as mentioned in avoid the things that are really hard on joints and tendons as much as possible. I can maintain muscle I have built easy and what I lose I can gain back in a month after healing with lighter weights working out for pump. I had a shoulder tear this year I couldn't bench for 10 weeks except for seated loaded incline press I only did high reps light weight for chest twice a week super setting it between rest of workouts. It healed but had to lay off of certain motions. Sometimes all we can do is let our body heal. Things help but won't heal us if we re-tearing.
