Well, this flaming “tennis elbow” is not going away in a hurry. The first prescription of some NSAID eased the pain for a couple of days, then flatlined. The second prescription of a strong ibuprofen gel did bugger all. And the third prescription of cocodamol was, I think, clutching at straws on the part of my GP (quite useful for hangovers, though). Meanwhile, it’s now spread to my right arm and may have reached crisis point as it’s a struggle to lift my beer glass.
