Elbow problems

07/24/2007

Question:

Hi, I am 14 years old and i have a nasty popping in my left elbow. I have been going to the doctor, nothing on the mri or x-rays, so they gave me a steroid injection...I got the shot about 3 weeks ago, and the popping has got to the same level of discomfort and popping as before the shot.I have tried an aircast arm band. I went to an orthopedic surgean and he was perplexed, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Answer:

I'm sorry, but it sounds like your problem is more extensive than what can be addressed in a general forum like this one. You may want to seek a second opinion if you are not satisfied with what you are being told by your current health care provider.
