Forgot to mention:

This Extracorporeal ShockWave Treatment I'm receiving actually seems to work! Only three weeks in and already the pain in my arm is much reduced. Not only that, but my ultrasound yesterday showed a definite lessening of the extent of the inflammation!

Even though I pushed for my doctor to refer me for this treatment, I must admit I was a little sceptical of it. I couldn't see how soundwaves could do anything to heal the tendon, and although I still don't understand how it works exactly, I can't quibble with the results: no longer do I lie awake at night biting my lip because my arm hurts, and during the day I can actually lift a carton of milk again! Not fully without pain yet, but I'm sure that day won't be too far away now.
