That made me laugh, too. The other problem with taking any analgesic, like Tylenol or iboprofin of aspirin, steadily for any length of time is that it can cause other problems, supposedly, according to doctors, e.g., aspirin with the stomach, tylenol with, I think, the kidneys--can't remember about ibuprofin. And to be effective one might have to take more and more. My doctor a long time ago said to take Tylenol for the arthritic pains. I thought it strange since that drug doesn't affect inflamation like aspirin and ibuprofin, but it does make the pain go away. I also rub on, when needed, capsaizin--it might burn at first but after regular use one doesn't even feel it on the skin but it does work--or, depending on the severit of pain and if it hasn't gone away in a day or two, Salon Pas patches. I think if you stay away from scanning for a while, as you plan to do, and then when you go back to it wear the elbow brace and only do a little scanning at a time, you should be o.k. And maybe try a different position, e.g., if you're bending your elbow, maybe keep your arm straight on the page or binding an press with the arm rather than the hand. G. Cindy I have to laugh since the top of the first sheet > says "no > scanning for six, (6), weeks." Yet I couldn't read > the sheets without > scanning them. Lol!
