Oh no, not again/tennis elbow stretch

Question: Is anyone else on the list doing the elastic band stretch for tennis elbow? I’ve been doing it for a couple of days, and to my dismay I find another achy area developing – around the hand knuckle joint area of my little finger, on the left hand. I’m wondering whether this is just an exercise type ache from an unaccustomed movement, or a new area of horrid RSI manifesting itself. I think I’m going to discontinue the stretch and ask the physio I’m seeing tomorrow about it. I’ve decided to see a private physio, as I figure that I’m more likely to get a proper effort at treating me from someone I’m paying, rather than from someone who has a huge NHS workload and who’s eager to sign off someone with something ‘airy-fairy’ like RSI in favour of treating more tangible injuries like torn Achilles tendons from playing football or squash or something. (This last said with heavy, bitter cynicism… ) Feeling despondent tonight, but hoping for a better day tomorrow.
