So 3 weeks on and I've had to succumb to the inevitable. Two days ago, to be honest.
I went to my Doctor, who administered 3 injections of anti-inflammatory gunk into my elbow tendons (don't ask me which!)
All I know is that it was painful, but not in the way I expected to be honest. It was kind of like the itch you can't scratch, but finally get to attack with cheese grater!
An intense burning pain, reminiscent of the searing pain every time I tried to pick anything up before the injections. But sweet, none-the-less! I forewent the local anasthetic, so he'd find the most painful spots. Which was not nice.
So the break continues for at least another 2 weeks, whilst my arm is like a plank!
On the brighter side, my local Rugby team has just amazingly made it to the top division of English Rugby - Go Chiefs! And it would appear that their fans have purloined the 'Tomahawk Chop' from the Braves (or Cleveland, apologies if I got it wrong - Cards fan!)
I'm off to Reading for the weekend, my 5th Wedding Anniversary, from where my wife and I will be commuting in to Twickenham for the Guinness Premiership Final and to watch England play the Brabarians (Rugby!) Should be lots of fun!
Seriously though, having gunk injected in to your tendons hurts - don't try this at home. (Unless you're really desperate, and know the limited success that it produces!)
Allez les noires!

IF your problem is tendinitis, try using wrist braces at night. It keeps my inflammation in check! I hope you will find relief as well. Do NOT allow them to slice your wrist tendons. So many have reported complete loss of the hand after that surgery. And of course, the doc is not responsible.
