64 years old Got new left knee last winter. Will get new right one in December. Rotator cuff repair six years ago. Have had arthiritis in all my joints for years. Took anti inflammatories for years. They ended up eating a hole in my stomach (perforated ulcer). Almost died. Now can't take anything other than tylenol. Not even baby aspirin.

It's called a muscle spasm and they hurt like hell. I can tell you that if you can decrease the stress in your life it will get better.

I don't know if this is the proper term, but "weedeater tendinitis?" It seems that the repetetive throttle action caused my whole arm to ache, especially on the outside of the elbow. I remember hardly being able to lift it, and had take some days off. Surprisingly, it was pretty serious.

I have lawncare elbow too & painters shoulder! Lol! Medical terms are tennis elbow & swimmers shoulder. When i was a painter, went to Dr for my shoulder & he said it was tendinitis caused by repetitive motions. I did alot of spraying above my head swinging arm back & forth for 12hr shifts, painting ceilings on Lowe's stores. It hurts to raise my arms sometimes, like they weigh a ton.

Just tore my LisFranc ligament in the middle of my foot on Thursday. Only way I can walk is to hobble with weight on the outside of my foot. I went to see the Dr. today and he put me on crutches and scheduled surgery for next Friday. Supposed to be 4 weeks of non weight bearing (crutches) post surgery.

I have been running solo but looks like I will be picking up a helper to whip, edge, and blow while I run the mower. I just started up and do this on the side so it's not life & death matter. Though I don't want to lose the 5 customers I have.
