Medial Epicondylitis: Golfer's elbow is medically termed medial epicondylitis and results from a strain on the tendon on the inside of the elbow that usually results from repeated actions similar to a golf swing. I would recommend anti-inflammatories such as otc Ibuprofen or Naproxen and rest the elbow for about 5-7 days. Gently get back into working out but pay attention to any problems and rest again if needed. Read more

Olecranon bursitis: Sometimes the sac that covers the bone of the elbow can get inflamed and fluid can leak into it, it can be a little spongy like a big sac of water- which is not too far from the truth. It can be drained then injected with a small amount of steroid to prevent recurrence. Or you could just avoid any further trauma, take some nsaid's and wait for it to go away. Read more

Difficult problem: Olecranon bursitis/infections can be very difficult to cure. His doctor will need to aspirate and culture out the pus (if he/she hasn't done that already) to find the right antibiotic. Sometimes these need to be treated with intravenous antibiotics and sometimes require surgery. Read more

Recently got mild-moderate golfer's elbow and am concerned I may miss the rest of golf season. If I wear a sleeve, will I still be able to play?

Recently got mild-moderate golfer's elbow and am concerned I may miss the rest of golf season. If I wear a sleeve, will I still be able to play?

Golfers Elbow: Hi Adam: Since your symptoms are mild, it is worthwhile trying a brace or sleeve during your game. About half of people who try a brace for the medial epicondylitis get improvement in pain. It is not an expensive option and won't cause harm. Also make sure you rest the elbow, ice it, and take anti-inflammatories. Good luck with your game! Best wishes, Nisha Read more

What can cause acute inner elbow lymph node swelling golf ball size bilateral. Passed kidney stone 2 days prior. See dr 2morrow. Took flomax (tamsulosin) for stone

Lymph node swelling: This location of lymph node swelling typically associates with an inflammatory reaction at the elbow or below, in your forearm or hand. Did you have an IV in your arm or hand? Flomax (tamsulosin) could lead to an allergic reaction but I think you would see other evidences. Are nails and fingers irritated? Do you have a rash elsewhere? Read more
