    Elbow/Forearm Injury

    I volunteer as an umpire and three days ago a foul ball hit me directly on my exposed elbow. It was incredibly painful as it hit me right on the joint causing swelling immediately. I finished the game returned home and have been icing the area on an off for a few days. The swelling has gone down, but there is pain in extending and contracting my forearm where there was no pain before.

    Back ache that won't go away

    unusual back pain - informal survey

    If you recently started having back pain that is unusual for you in type or duration, did you have the flu or a flu-like illness before the onset of pain?

I have had a couple of instances since the 3 week episode where I had a sudden very painful stitch in the side rib area that seemed to migrate around to the back. Now,....
