    Sorry to hear that. Been suffering with a mix of tendinitis in my index finger, tennis elbow and bum shoulder all on my right arm.
    I work as a dairy lead in a grocery store. One of my daily jobs is to refill the milk cases so have to lift hundreds of gallons of milk daily. Been doing this for 10 years now. Lets put it this way, my whole right arm is constant pain from my index finger to my elbow to my shoulder. Been getting Cortisone shots for years now.
    I take vitamins, aspirin and keep everything wrapped when it flairs up bad. I can't play a lot of pinball any longer. Some weeks I only play the 4 games I need to play at league. On good weeks I can play a couple games a day but can't over do it. If I go to shows and spend the day playing games you can bet I'll have my arm wrapped and a wrist brace with index finger support for the following week. On a side note, I've completely given up play any kind of video games. Can't even lay my old NES or SNES any longer. Getting old sucks.
