Just my elbow!

I had an MRI yesterday of my left elbow (the same elbow that I fractured three years ago).

I'm pretty sure I have radial tunnel syndrome and so is the orthopedic specialist.

The radial nerve gets impinged in the region of the elbow and then sends neuropathic symptoms distally in the forearm.

It's been going on for a few months and it's starting to get old.

The MRI took about 30 minutes (and everyone aware of the claustrophobia and noise will know that's a long time)!

I only got scolded once by the technician when my foot started to slip off the pillow.

When the technician pulled me out of the scanner the only thing I could think of saying was "I just hope I never get something really big wrong with me!"

He laughed.
