  9. Hi
    My husband has been suffering for more thatn a year with severe pain in the right elbow around the joint this creaates a pain up and down the arm around the wrist and on the upper part of the arm you can see the muscle pulsating. There is also swelling in the fingers of the smae hand.
    I studied Homeopathy and have recently qualified, I have tried Arnica (Massage oil) and pipets, Wwe then tried Rus tox cream after that treatment and finally he has just finished a course of Causticum which also has not worked.
    The pain is easier for warmth and he has taken to wearing a strap around the elbow.

    Dear Dr . Sharman,
    I have suffered from intermittent Tennis elbow pain for the last couple of years i am a health care worker moving heavy clients around i am of slight build. The pain normally starts in one arm and takes about 8 months to clear and then it moves to the other arm so im never really free form the pain. The pain is normally at its worst during the night and in the morning the pain is a dull pain mainly coming from the arm crease where blood would be drawn from, this pain then moves down the front of my arm .
    I dont normally have to take painkillers for the pain but sometimes i have to, i have ment to try Homeopathy as it looks like i may be prone to Tennis Elbows! but dont really know the best one for me.
    Advice on the correct remedy would be much appreciated.
    Kind Regards.
