Has anybody else ever experienced a locked arm/elbow. I do a lot of swimming and woke up with what felt like a sore muscle in my upper arm. (I immediately thought it was swimmers elbow). By nightfall, the arm was in a locked position. I've since seen my family physician who thought it was possibly cellulitis. Then i went to a vascular guy because they thought it was a blood clot. Now I'm seeing an orthopedic oncologist who after reviewing the MRI thinks it's either a tumor or myositis ossificans (bone that forms withing muscle after an injury or trauma). I guess the last two resembel each other, so I have to wait another 3 weeks to get another MRI or Xray. The wait is driving me crazy. My arm seems to have loosened up a touch, but I still can't come close to straightening it. Hopefully one of my barking bear friends can give me some imput on this!
