To accompany the left-side torn rotator cuff, labrum, and long bicipital tendon, there are really nasty forearm pains on the right extremity. There was no sudden trauma; the impairment developed insidiously over the past few months. Hand extension, arm curls, arm extension, supination, pronation, writing, even the relatively gentle motion of pushing a plastic cap on a vinegar bottle elicit symptoms at various points along the two forearm bones.

I was hoping that my primary MD would script me an MRI like he did for the left shoulder mess without any hesitation. But no, the best I could get was an Rx for an X-ray of the elbow. Not sure what that's gonna show other than arthritis. Seems to me that given the location of the worst symptoms, a look at the soft tissues would be more appropriate, perhaps tendinitis or tenosynovitis at work here?

He also wants me on a few days of oral prednisone. So we'll see how that shakes out.
