Tennis elbow from the shark lift away?

Am I the only one?

2 weeks in and I am obsessed by my new vacuum suckiness and also obsessed by cleaning the dust everywhere after my family due to allergies... but the last two days I seem to have a throbbing aching deep pain in my upper for arm and feels like tennis elbow ! Every other day I do the house and mop so not that extreme as have a computer job, two kids under 4 and two cats... and a Dh.

Has anyone else got this or other cleaning injuries or advice on how to alleviate it??

Sorry I can’t help about your elbow other than to suggest resting it for a few days and seeing if that makes any difference.

But... is the Shark liftaway really that great? I read amazing reviews but it looks huge and clunky in photos 🤔

Am loving the suck and cleaning but compared to my old dyson it is so tricking heavy ... so heavy. Wow. Soooooo heavy. Did I mention it was heavy?

😂 Yes it looks heavy. My cordless dyson has died a death so I’m shopping around a bit!

I hope your elbow improves- maybe someone else could be on vacuuming duty for a week or two?

I've got a dyson V10 because I have so any issues with tennis elbow. I realised that the Shark was waaay too heavy for mead would aggravate it.

I’ve got the shark and it is indeed very heavy, however I use it everyday and get a ridiculous amount of satisfaction from how good it is! It cleans so much better than my previous dysons and for me that alone makes the added weight worth it. I also like to tell myself it is giving me a mini workout...
