I have what is probably tennis elbow, again. I had it a few years ago in my left elbow. After several months of limited use, it finally got better. Now I have it in my right elbow. Im right handed. Its been hurting for almost 2 months now and not getting any better. Ive been wearing one of those tennis elbow bands and taking Advil. Every time I think its feeling better, I overuse my right arm and Im back to square one. Been thinking about going to the doctor. I have heard cortisone shots hurt like H E double hockey sticks. But I have a very high pain threshold and am seriously thinking about getting one if he recommends it. Anyone have any experience with cortisone injections? Do they work? Worth the pain?
