Just touching them really hurts. Anyone have this problem?

Potsie have you considered maybe going to your PCP and let him/her check them out. Lots of time people get what is called tennis elbow and not really have to much of anything to have it appear. You didn't mention how long this has been going on, so maybe a trip to the dr is all that is needed.

Hope this gets better and soon. Take care.

Straydog, I'd say it's been hurting for at least a month. My right elbow hurts the most, especially lately. If it keeps up, I'll see the doctor about it.

Potsie, sounds like you should get an appt and go get seen by your dr. A month of those elbows hurting is long enough to sure warrant having them checked out.

Let us know what happens.

Thanks Straydog! I think I will. It really hurts when I straighten my arm.

I went to Ohio about a month ago, and tripped and fell over a fan. I landed on my right elbow. So, I think I did more harm, even though it hurt a little before, it hurts more now.
