What kind of injury is it when the bottom of tricep to the elbow is hurting when I stretch my arm?

What kind of injury is it when the bottom of tricep to the elbow is hurting when I stretch my arm?

Likely tendinitis: The triceps muscles connects to the bony prominence of the elbow at the olecranon via the triceps tendon. Pain at the insertion site can be from the muscle, tendon, or bone. Overuse injuries commonly affect the tendon (tendinitis). Direct trauma or injury to the olecranon can also cause pain. The bony insertion site can develop a bruise, stress fracture, or actual fracture. X-rays can help here. ...Read more

The Human Lean-To: Yes it could be a nerve problem(neuropathy)from leaning. I'm surprised your back doesn't also hurt! Proper posture at the computer(or anywhere)is very important these days!So readjust the location of your screen so you can sit upright,knees hip height and arms horizontal.If not better in 3-4 weeks,see a doctor.And check this out: http://dailyinfographic.com/sitting-down-is-killing-you-infographic ...Read more

Fell on arm two weeks ago. Pain in shoulder/tricep/elbow. Got x-Ray and nothing is broken. Two weeks later I still can't put any pressure on arm.

Fell on arm two weeks ago. Pain in shoulder/tricep/elbow. Got x-Ray and nothing is broken. Two weeks later I still can't put any pressure on arm.

See a doctor: I'd probably go back to your doctor and get it examined again. Sometimes there can be breaks that don't show up on the initial x-ray. I usually tell my patients that the pain can get worse for up to 5 days after an accident, but after that it should start to get better. If it is getting worse, to come back and we will re-examine and maybe repeat the x-rays. ...Read more

Left side only. Arm/neck/middle spine numb, painful upon waking for years. Oct. Severe left scapula, shoulder, underarm, tricep elbow forearm pain?

More testing needed: These symptoms are too vague to allow for a more detailed response. These problems are best evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon. This will require a comprehensive physical exam and the necessary x-rays or MRI tests. Only then can a reasonable diagnosis be made. ...Read more

Can ulnar nerve pain cause bicep and tricep pain? Also have pain on both sides of elbow/wrist. Carpal tunnel was released on same arm 4 months ago.

Can ulnar nerve pain cause bicep and tricep pain? Also have pain on both sides of elbow/wrist.  Carpal tunnel was released on same arm 4 months ago.

May not be ulnar: The ulnar nerve can cause pain through out its distribution in your arm, but your pain does not fit only ulnar pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome is related to your median nerve. To have both median nerve and ulnar nerve issues, you most likely have an issue upstream of those nerves not specifically with the median or ulnar, either brachial plexus issue or cervical radiculopathy. Emg should be done. ...Read more

1yr ago removed implant for distal humerus elbow fracture. Arm partial stiff & triceps atrophy, no progress. Continue physio, try surgery, or no hope?

Get 2nd opinion: Elbow fractures that require orif( open reduction and internal fixation) are prone to elbow stiffness. If p.T./ bracing( dyna splint to improve extension) is not improving your motion consider seeing an ors who is proficient @ elbow arthroscopy. Arthroscopic release can improve elbow motion dramatically in some pts. It can be technically demanding so speak w/ your ors and see if this is an option. ...Read more
