I hit my elbow on the wall whilst vacuuming 8 weeks ago. It still hurts to move and touch, and it is swollen with a big bump on the bone. There is no break or fracture. The doctor said a bone bruise can take up to 6 months to heal. Has this a tms thing now? Everything I read about bone bruise on the internet complies to what the doctor said. A bone bruise is in the marrow and unlike a broken bone that heals within 8-10 weeks, a bone bruise is very painful and takes a long time to heal. I am working so hard on my tms issues and pains, and really didn't need an injury to add to the mix! Any thoughts? Thanks for all your support on the forum - everyone who reads my questions - thanks in advance.
