I Have Been Recently Diagnoised With Epicondylitis (tennis Elbow)

I Have Been Recently Diagnoised With Epicondylitis (tennis Elbow)

I have been diagnosed with tennis elbow spurred by the tremors/spasm I have in my hand. Has anyone else had this problem and has it been an ongoing problem?

I haven't been diagnosed with tennis elbow but I have been diagnosed with tendonitis in both feet. I haft to see a foot specialist Friday. It was caused by the medication I am on..I take Mirapex.

I asked my doctor to refer me to a occupation therapist to work to strengthen my hands and forearm muscles. I have gone for two weeks and am already feeling some relief from the pain. I am also learning some stretching and strengthening for my forearm - the tremors/spasms in my hand is constantly pulling on the tendons/muscles attached to my elbow so these stretches/massaging will be something I will need to always do

I went to several weeks of occupational therapy and it did not help. What did help was a deep tissue massage I had. I let the massage therapist know I was having problems with the elbow and after that one massage I did not have any more problems. Since than, I make sure I get a massage once a month to help all these poor muscles that are being pulled in so many directions.

Thank you for responding. I have been going to occupational therapy - hopefully it will help with the healing and give me some suggestions to help it from continuing - if possible.

I had lateral epicondylitis for almost one year. It involved the same muscles that were active in my tremor. I suspect that the intensity of my tremor (pre-DBS) may have caused some entanglement of muscle fibers. In any case, it took many months to resolve. I found cross-fiber massage to be helpful
