Dealing with bursitis:
I’ve had an eye-opening experience about how many different causes of a swollen elbow there can be, besides bursitis.
There’s a site with a lot of good information about telling the difference between conditions that can all present as having fluid on the elbow or elbow swelling. They cover torn ligaments, fractures, cartilage injury, cellulitis, abcesses, septic arthritis, septic bursitis, bone infections (also called osteomylitis), olecranon bursitis (also called popeye elbow…I actually think this may be what I have), tennis elbow, gout, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
All these conditions present symptoms that can include swelling of the elbow or fluid under the elbow. Whew. Who knew?
Anyway, to educate yourself further on what your elbow pain may be telling you,
visit the Everett Clinic and search for the Healthwise Report on Swollen Elbow Pain, written by Jan Nissl, RN, copyright, all rights reserved.
