Does anyone have any recommendations for a Bone & Joint specialist in town? I'm have intense shooting pain between my elbow and wrist that travels up through my right shoulder... mouse related, I'm sure.

Thank you!!!!!

You could go to an orthopedist (bone and joint specialist), but I would recommend that you go to a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctor, also called PM&R or Physiatrist. They may be better with soft tissue dysfunction (like muscles, tendons and ligaments) and are good in helping with rehab from repetitive stress injuries, sports injuries and poor mechanics causing pain. I am new in the area, and don't know of particular doctors, although my sister has used one that she thinks is really great. I'll see if I can get the name.

Hmmm... You may need to ask when you call specific doctors about their expertise in the connective tissue disorder that you have. Have you actually been diagnosed, or are you just thinking you may have this? I have known some pediatric orthopedists who are really expert in congenital connective tissue disorders because they so affect the growth and development of bones and joints. But not all connective tissue disorders are genetic or congenital. Sometimes you can find centers of expertise in specific diagnoses. As I mentioned, I am new to the area, and don't know much about who the experts are. But you can PM me if you wish, and I will try to brain storm with you.

I haven't personally used them, but one of my friends has used Dr. Schoch at this office Austin Orthopedic Doctor and was very happy with him and the surgeries he performed on her knees.

If you have a connective tissue disease, you will need to see a rheumatologist. However, you might be getting relief from a manual Physical therapist. Please feel free to email me or PM me privately as I have a lot of experience (too much) in this area.
Good luck, Faith

Austin Bone and Joint Clinic is highly rated and I believe all their physicians are board certified, i'd suggest Dr. John Pierce he's well recoqnized as a leader in this field. Good Luck!
