Tennis Elbow

March 20th, 2018 at 03:14 pm

Well somehow I have ended up with tendonitis in my elbow - or tennis elbow. I was sent to a sports medicine place and fitted with a band placed right below my elbow. It's supposed to give my tendons a different pressure point so they can rest and re-strengthen I think. If it doesn't improve in a few weeks, then we'll do physical therapy.

My blood pressure was 110/80 Smile

The arm band cost $24. I put it on the US Bank card and will submit the receipt to my FSA for reimbursement.

She also told me to take ibuprofen 3x a day for inflammation.

I pretty much have loads of aspirin ... but I remembered in DHs cabinet there was a bottle of ibuprofen - and there was! So no money out there.
I got home in time to call our electric provider and get my account unlocked and change the cc to US Bank.

I need to have DH do the same for Netflix, and then also Internet. Then I think I'll have switched everything I can. Come on 5%! Smile

The funeral for the coworker will be on Thursday. We're probably going to take a bus to the church. It sounds like a lot of people are going. Our new accountant (less than six months) is going to cover the phones for me so I can go. I thought that was pretty sweet.

I thought about going to see I Can Only Imagine tonight (5$ Tuesdays) since I was home early ... but decided not to. Maybe if it's still out here next week.

    I had tennis elbow once -- not from playing table, but from painting. I had to get two cortisone shots before it went away! Hope your band works!

    Sorry about your tennis elbow. Glad you had some Ibuprofen and didn't have to purchase it. Hope you feel better.

    Obviously, I meant playing TENNIS! Not sure how "table" got there! Smile

    Thanks Rose and Rob.

    CB - I was thinking you might be talking about table tennis maybe. Smile
