So apparently an MRI showed I have tendinitis in my right arm; elbow specifically. A lot more painful than I would have thought, if I try to curl much more than a 15-20 with it my arm basically collapses. Doctor told me to just lay off it for 6 weeks, but it's been almost 5 weeks of inactivity now and I'm not really feeling any change. I'ma go back and talk to him this week, but I'm curious...I read a magazine article the other day that said recent cases are showing if you just work out through the pain, it will heal faster. Anybody have specific history with tendinitis healing faster one way or another? I've had to shut out upper body pretty much completely and this is starting to suck.
