My son is 12 years old and was just diagnosed with elbow OCD. He has had no history of arm issues, no gradual pain, but had elbow pain after pitching on 5/21. He remembers his arm hurt on his 2nd to last batter, got the last batter out, and was done for the day after 63 pitches. His arm had swelling so we shut him down and took him to the doctor. They examined him, did Xrays, and found nothing (growth plates open). So they scheduled an MRI for 3 weeks later (6/10).
On Monday we got the results and they gave us the diagnosis - elbow OCD with loose bodies. The weird part to us is my son has no history of pain, no pain now, and has full range and motion of his arm. He does have clicking noise in his elbow (once every 50 elbow extensions). We meet with the surgeon on Friday but it seems weird that he has none of the symptoms people frequently have. ANyone have a similar experience?
