 Sh|t shovellers elbow

how the heck do i get rid of it? I work 8 hours at a farm daily, and my elbow seizes up and it hurts to move my lower arm. Any thoughts?

Sounds like probable tendonitus. (Used to be called "Tennis Elbow") Seeing a doctor for diagnosis is recommended.

Get a 2 inch wide band of fabric with strips of Velcro (will need to be adjustable in size- I beleive some drug stores sell them pre made but I dont know if theres one near you) and wrap it around your upper forearm, just below the elbow. (you know, the meaty muscular part where you can feel the muscle and tendons) and wrap it securely. The constriction of the tendons helps releive the pressure. Then take over the counter Motrin (You dont want to take Ibuprofin for prolonged periods or in high doses for too long as its very hard on the stomach, kidneys and liver over time) to reduce the inflamation.

This will not cure it if it is tendonitus, but should bring a little releif. The only cure for it is rest.
