reduced healing times?

Postby cala » Fri Jul 02, 2010 11:35 pm

Not sure if this is part of fibro or not but its only just becoming obvious i suppse to me :P

Does anyone else find when injured and in a bad flare up that the injury takes much longer to heal?

I got pulled over by our puppy the other week and dislocated my elbow - now i've done this lots in the past following a previous injury weakening the socket but over 2 weeks later and i am still feeling imense pain within the elbow and its taking forever and ever to stop hurting :( I am in a bad flare up at the moment in the physical side but I havent noticed it taking this long to heal after dislocating my elbow :(

hi :wave:
could just be your fibro
because you are in a flare anyway so all pain is higher
so you have like double the amount in your elbow because you have injury pain and fibro pain :dunno:
that was a bit long winded :oops:
hope you know what i mean :lol:

I think it's pretty normal with Fibro to take longer to recover from injuries. Are you hypermobile? That can also increase healing times.

i did have it strapped up but my puppy decided to eat the support bandage :P

I'm not really hypermobile but i havent really been able to rest it as its my right arm and and i'm right handed and i already have my left arm strapped up as i have a weird issue with my left arm where the tendon is super tight and wont release at all despite lots of physio and meds for it :S Maybe its a possible chance its the same in my right arm now? it does seem to be the tendon holding it tight :(
