persisting pain in elbow - please suggest remedy

I have a persisting pain in both elbows. I first started feeling a pain in my right wrist after the birth of my first baby in 2003. Initially it was diagnosed as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Then about late 2004, the pain moved to the right elbow (outer side). After detailed MRI, the doctor diagnosed this as tennis elbow and gave a shot of steroid. This relieved the pain for about 2-3 months. After that, the pain restarted. Then in early 2007 (after birth of my second child) the pain spread to my other elbow as well.
Currently, i am having pain in both the elbows. I am not able to sleep with my hands folded. I always feel the need to stretch my hands - it relieves the pain. I cannot lift any heavy item. I cannot keep the arms folded. However, during normal light jobs, it does not bother me.
Please note that I am a house wife. I don't use computers much. I have not yet done any treatment (homeopathy or otherwise) except for a single shot of steroid in 2006.
Request you to suggest a remedy for the ailment.

Pl take Ruta 6 or Ruta 30...three times a day and as the pain reduces...begin to reduce the frequency of the med.

Ruta is specific for pains that start in the wrist.

Hi Radha,
I had similar pain in my left elbow 'outer side'. I took Ruta 200 and it helped a lot. Please share your experience with Ruta or other medicines if you tried ?
People generaly ask remedy and later dont report the outcome especially if it is positive ...
