Seventeen years old, constant elbow pain. What to do?
Patient : I play volleyball and have recently hurt my elbow from diving and landing on the same side many times. It originally formed a knot, but now it is just slightly 'knotted' and is still bruised 1 month later. Now, my elbow is still hurting and almost feels like fluid or something is in the elbow. Also it feels heavy and there is a constant ache. Any idea on what it is? Or what I can do to help my elbow heal quicker?
