heard snapping or popping noise when lifting shovel.this was followed by considerable pain and what looks like bulging muscle just below inside of elbow especially when rotating forearm to point thumb upward.elbow bends ok with little pain but hurts to rotate forearm to point thumb upward.Have been using R.I.C.E. therapy! with very slight improvement.
BIGGJ responded:
I forgot to mention I have no bruising and have been taking naproxene threetimes per day(3 220mg. tabs.every 6 hrs.). Family med. Dr. at clinic said continue what I am doing and see how it goes for couple weeks.I currently have no insurance and need to know what most affordable test to determine severity of injury would be.I may have state funded insurance in 30 days or so hopefully as I am currently out of work!
