Hello,


Hi my daughter hurt herself while she was climbing a tree. The doctor hesitated before putting that arm in plaster but they did it as she was so much in pain.

The X-ray reveals nothing her elbow is perfectly good but she is still in pain after two month I'm desperate, do help.

I would return back to you GP and get her reassessed - she may need reassessing by the orthopaedic doctors at the hospital.
Thanks

Hello,

if she says that she is still in pain there must be something wrong. I advise you to make her undergo electrical nerve studies. It is not very comfortable but this is the only option that I have for you.

They will have to see the reaction speed of the nerves messages.

Take care.
