    Andy, ignore the Doctor. They are OK for dishing out pills etc. but not that good at actually fixing things. :cool:I have specialised in this field and have cured many patients with this problem, usually with one treatment. And they have never had a recurrence. Tennis, hockey, airport baggage handlers and a professional Squash player (world champion at the time), have all recovered immediately and carried on with their sports/jobs. I may not know much about trumpet playing, but I am bloody good at sports injuries.

    Another possibility is that the problem stems from your sleeping position. If you normally sleep in a fetal position, with both forearms drawn up near your face, that can do it. If that's the case, wrapping the affected arm in a towel at bedtime can help keep it from being flexed that way. Or you can use an extra pillow to keep your arms apart, and try to keep them reasonably straight. In my case, the sleeping position proved to be the cause (and the solutions came from my doctor).

    Andy, please note, I actually recommended AGAINST using pills. I am into holistic healing. Medications are the last resort. Case in point, I find the trumpet better for dealing with the stress of life than any anti-depressant medication!

    Andy - might be wise to get a Doctor versed in Sports Injury to have a look. It might be something as simple as a thumbtack from leaning on your elbow. See, we engineers go for the mechanical things first, based on direct observation, we might go to the internet/books for suggested repairs, but we ALWAYS have a look first.

    I'm pleased that life is full for you, too.

    You just should have told her it was for a big Pussy. She for sure would have written it then.

    That explains why I heard the "clip clop" as you came from the car to the front entrance of Nighttown.

    it seems to reduce inflammation in my joints (horse liniment) ----- and you know when I go camping, I put a rope around my campsite to keep the rattlesnakes from getting to me, as it is well known that rattlesnakes will NOT cross over a rope ----------- ((and I'm often reminded of this when I watch John Wayne movie "Rooster Cogburn" with Katherine Hepburne ------ where "Rooster puts a lasso of rope around her blanket during the night, he explains: "Ma'am, I am not going to say it works, and I am NOT going to say it don't work to keep the rattlers away, but it sure is comforting to have it"
