BECAUSE OF A STROKE I EXPERIENCED AUGUST 5, 2010, I AM UNCOMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN 24/7 ADD THE DISCOMFORTS CREATED FROM THE MEDICINE I TAKE SOME DAYS ARE HARDER TO STAY POSITIVE ABOUT MY LIFE. I HAVE A LOT OF STRESS DAILY AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ACHIEVE SOME LEVEL OF COMFORT AND I SEEM TO BE FAILING AND I FEEL ITS DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF THE MEDICINES I TAKE.
From this study (2 months 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
