Wii have a problem...



When I was younger, I played Tennis quite a bit, but had to stop after my knee injury. Too many direction changes for someone that has a dislocated patella! Well, turns out, you can get Tennis Elbow even if you don't play tennis.

Recently, I've been waking up with extreme pain in my right elbow. It would last a few minutes, and then go away and I'd go back to sleep. Well, I'd finally had enough and called my doctor. He didn't even have to see me! Once I described the pain, he told me that he was sure I was suffering from tennis elbow and to take ibuprofen 3 times a day, and to call if it gets worse. He asked if I was involved in any activity where I use my right arm a lot, and I said no. I had forgotten one little detail...

WII FIT BOXING!!!

I realized that I feel pain in the middle of the night after I do rhythm boxing! So basically, I have a Wii related injury! So, no more boxing for me... :-(

PLAY WITH CAUTION!! :-)

Oh no! I laughed a little when you said you had a Wii sports injury but that is a serious thing. I'm surprised the makers of the Wii aren't faced with sports injury lawsuits because of things like this. In all actuality though I know it must be the worst & so painful so I'm going to keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery! :)

It actually has a medical term called "Wiiitis" it was even published in the New England Journal of Medicine!

Yes Jenny, from The step boxing. Actually, not from the step boxing itself, but trying to get a knockout at the end...

It's okay Erin, I think it's really funny! I never thought an elbow could hurt so much though!
:-) The Wii has so many disclaimers that I don't think anyone could win a lawsuit!

Wiitis --- oh my goodness! I think I've had Wiitis before but my bones are so bad anyway so it never really occured to me until now. Feel better!!
