Do these real do anything for muscle pain. Do they give off EMF's or any other negative effects for lyme patients or in my case tennis elbow.

To reduce the inflammation and pain of tennis elbow, look into Systemic enzymes, such as Serrapeptase or Wobenzym, and PEMF, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
I used a SOTA Magnetic Pulser to "fix" my painful knee, with several treatments per day for the first week, then tapering for the next week or so. This technology is amazing.

As far as i know, a TENS unit is a muscle stimulator. Tennis elbow is inflammation of a tendon so not sure if it will help. I've had tennis elbow in both elbows. Did 3 rounds of steroid shots and PT in my right arm and ended up having to get surgery for it. (I got the steroid shots before I knew I had lyme and I think this is what started to make my symptoms worse.) Luckily, PT helped my left elbow. So, I HIGHLY recommend PT if you have not gone that route yet.
If you can find a physical therapist who specializes in the Graston Technique, that would really help...but any PT is better than none. Graston requires special training, so not many PTs have it. But, basically the PT uses special tools that manipulate the soft tissue.
