    Could be some weird psychological thing or your body just adjusting - ride it out bud .........gently .

    Golfers elbow mate. If its traveling up your arm, its not good.Its usually gradual. Then gets worse, then worse. Gets where you cant lift a kettle or wipe your bum...serious! Operation is fantastic and lasts about 5 years.
    Start taking glucosamine sulphate, EVERY DAY. After 3 months it will take a lot of pain away. I took oils also.
    Cant see new pole doing it, if its just the same. Try switching arms.
    I got it from plastering. Massive strain.
    WFP isn't a bad strain, so manage it and you should be ok. Hold pole better

    I once got tennis elbow from using wfp. Lasted 12 months & haven't had it since, I don't want it either!! Ends up affecting your ability to grip, couldn't even lift my work flask one handed at it's worst! Do you get pain in your arm if you clench your fist?

    This is worrying reading this thread. I started Wfp nearly 6 months ago and at the same time I hit the weights hard in the gym (never lifted weights before) i've been getting that exact pain on the inner side of the elbowon both sides it's unmistakeable. I've sacked off the gym three weeks ago and it has eased a bit but to be honest I thought it was going to disappear after a week.

    So did I. A customer told me it would last 12 months before naturally healing & funnily enough it was almost exactly 12 months. Physio did naff all either.
