So today I went to a show with Mitch, before we even managed to leave things weren't going so well. He did not want to get on that float, so long story short I made backing up a harder task than getting on the float, and at some point during this I think I hyper extended my right arm (whacked him in the guts because he lunged towards me, bad mum I know) and heard a pop in my elbow, it hurt a bit and I lost feeling in my fingers for a few minutes, but didn't think anything of it and got to the show and did what we did (come home with two ribbons after much arguing about who was leader of who, I won).
I got home about 5-6 hours ago now, and my elbow is not getting any better, I have gotten tingling sensations in my fingers and hand several times for no reason, I can't push/pull/lift anything, it even hurts to open the fridge door with that arm... I'm right handed.
It is a bit swollen, but there's no discolouration or bruising, there is one very small area right on the tip of the elbow that hurts like crap, and the pain kind of radiates around the whole joint, getting worse every time I move my elbow.
Is it worth getting it checked out if it doesn't clear by the end of the week? Today is Thursday here. Wondering if I've chipped the bone or pulled a muscle or something in there, but there's also a pinching sensation.
If I try to move any weight with that arm, the pain kind of freezes my arm in that one spot for a bit. So strange.
