My elbows have been sore and a little swollen late. Today I have a sharp, burning pain in my right elbow. Getting ready for bed tonight, I saw my elbow in the bathroom mirror. The right elbow, right at the joint where it bends, is a bit swollen and has a circle with a diameter of an inch and a half of red skin around it. Sound familiar to anyone? I have had sore elbows for years, but never this sharp, burning pain. Usually it is a dull ache. Now the redness is there. I guess it could be inflammation. I have an MRI scheduled at the ortho's on Friday. Guess I will see if he or his NP has time to look at my elbow. Any comments/info would be very welcome.
