Cathy Kates’ Last Ditch Cure For Tennis Elbow: Horse Liniment [Cue The Jokes]

The doctor says if the elbow hurts on the top, it's tennis elbow.  If it hurts on the bottom, it's golfers elbow.  I haven't done either and my left elbow has been killing me for months.  I can barely lift a coffee cup to my face!  I talked about this during the morning show and a listener face booked me and said she and two others in her office have the same thing and so does my husband!  Could rubbing medication for horses really be our cure?
