For a few weeks I’ve been suffering nasty twinges in my right elbow. What brings them on can be a bit unpredictable: on the one hand I can carry weight, but against that a simple shrug can cause agony. I suspect use of a computer mouse doesn’t help, so I’m using the laptop rather more than before, and contemplating trying a mouse left-handed at the desktop.
This afternoon I went for my first swim since the elbow deteriorated last week. For the first couple of minutes swimming it was agony, but I stayed in and moved carefully. Soon it was much-improved, and it remained rather better than it has been when I got out. Now – six hours on – it’s a dull ache, but no major pain.
I shall have to try making the swim a daily dose of therapy 🙂
