Any joint can develop osteoarthritis. However, some joints are more prone to it than others. More common joints to develop osteoarthritis include the hips, knees, hands, and spinal joints.

Other potential causes of elbow pain include:
Ø Lateral epicondylitis (Tennis elbow)
Ø Medial epicondylitis (Golfer's elbow)
Ø Ligament strain or sprain
Ø Triceps tendonitis
Ø Muscle strain
Ø Osteochondritis dissecans

I hope you can help me. I lose my vision in my left eye for at least 15 to 20 minutes then I get numbness in my left hand and face for a few minutes then I get a headache on the right side of my head and it last for three days I went to the doctor for it before and he said it was my body telling I was getting a migraine is this true? thank you, tony.

Tennis elbow , one of the most common stress injuries of the arm, is a type of tendinitis that at some point afflicts almost one-third of all Americans who play tennis. Yet tennis players are not the only persons at risk, since any activity that calls for forceful, repeated contraction of the arm muscles can bring on tennis elbow. Working with carpentry tools, gardening, raking leaves, or even tightly gripping a heavy briefcase are only a few of the activities that can cause tennis elbow. Baseball, golf, bowling, racket sports, and even playing darts can bring it on. Who Gets It? To some extent, this depends on the condition of your muscles and how much they are overused. In tennis, the injury occurs most frequently among recreational players who are 35 to 50 years ...
