About two months ago a was kicked in my right forearm(an accident of course). It bruised and formed a knot that took about a month to heal. The location was about two inches down from my elbow. Now, of all things, my brain has decided it to turn it into a case of tennis elbow! At least I think that's what it is. I've never had tennis elbow before, but it aches in that area and in my upper forearm. Not only that, my brain has started subconciously holding tension in that forearm and the tension has even moved to encompass my left forearm(though it's not as bad as the right.) When my right elbow and forearm ache, I KNOW it is TMS and I TRY not to focus on it. Even so, it shows no signs of going away. I don't let it stop me from doing any movement. It is annoying though, because I'll be reading or typing and I can feel all this tension in both forearms and can't seem to get rid of it. This is an area I've never had pain in before. I've managed to heal some back pain and other pains, but this seems to be stuck. I think it would feel a lot worse if I didn't know it was TMS, but since I do, it only gives me a dull ache. Why does it keep hanging around even though I know it's TMS?
