Comments from related studies:
From this study (22 hours ago):
After an elbow injury I have received x-rays and been to doctors and they believe it is just a contusion to the elbow. The pain continues to increase, it has become constant pain in the elbow (where the injury occurred), down to my wrist, and up to my shoulder. I cannot move it without sending shooting pains that immobilize me down to my fingers and up to my shoulder. I have been having it in a sling, and icing it and taking ibuprofen and tramadol which only barely dull the pain.
Is this really only a contusion? How long should I wait before seeking more medical help
