I have a report from an orthopaedic specialist acting for an insurance co. Stating that a 48 year old's tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is due to menopause, not her work as a cleaner. Is this a possibility?
The doctor is working for the insurance company so they will say anything not to pay out money. See if you can get a second opinion. I am just a layperson, and I do not think they are related. I have gone thru menopause and have had no problems like that. You are just being snowed. Good luck.
I am 49, just went of birth control pills 3 months ago and started menopause, and have been having elbow pain since. My doctor said it was tennis elbow (both elbows) though I don't play tennis. I thought it was from lifting too much weight, but then a friend suggested it could be a side effect of my hormone replacement therapy (Activella). Anyone else having elbow pain out there who just started meno?
