I have had tendonitis in my wrist for near two years and it gets so frustrating to have it still be painful. It all started when i was obsessively drawing with a pen till my wrist was in so much pain i had to stop. i thought i was building muscle bc it was sore but wow i was really wrong………… i have done physical therapy, and most of the typical stuff and now i want some more ideas???? i do some of the wrist stretches as well and mostly try to stay off of it. i don’t draw anymore and dabble with the guitar which can make my wrist quite angry? i just need some ideas on how to really get this healed. please………

I’m 51, female, was injured when my arm was pulled by husband 2 months ago, and the pain keeps getting worse- having trouble sleeping, and range of motion affected. Doctor wanted to give me cortisone shot, physical therapy hurts, i’m not sure i want to take so much Aleve. Any suggestions?
Has anyone received Shock Wave Therapy for patellar tendonitis, using the Sonorex / Sonocur equipment?
I just started, and since I haven’t read about anyone else (besides Dwayne Wade) doing this, I figure I’d post my results.
How it goes: you do 3-5 visits, 8 minutes each, for about $300 a pop! ouch. but the real pain is with the actual therapy. they can dial up the intensity between 1 and 7. Depending on the location, 3 was unbearable to me. But, it actually feels like it helped after only one session (i have 3 more). it’s expensive, but i’ve done EVERYTHING else to try to fix this problem (RICE, physical therapy, eccentric exercises – although i just started, but it re-aggravated the problem). Stay tuned for my continued results.
I have lost over 50% use of the arm and shoulder and have not gotten a good nights sleep in months. The pain has gone into my neck and cortizone shots have not helped. I have had MRI, x-rays, physical therapy, seen a chrioprator, use ice and heat, advil and muscle relaxers. Anyone that can help me or give me other advice? I am sick of doctors and sick of the pain and I can not help but wonder why this is still bothering me.
