For 2 weeks my left elbow is getting to the point I don't know what to do. The pain is so much I can't pick up my iPad; it is a 7 on the scale of pain. I am not even left handed. My hand is swelling a little.

My elbow is very sore. The pain is right below my elbow. I don't recall the injury. It hurts to move my arm and feels like pain is trying to go into my biceps. I have no swelling or irritated skin, just pain with movement.

I have bumped my elbow in to door jams a few times while moving in to a new apartment. It has a sharp pain at times but no swelling. Lifting small things can create a sharp pain and even resting my elbow on the armrest of a couch hurts. Could I have chipped or fractured the bone? It's the inside of the elbow, not the very tip (when bent).

I have experienced this elbow pain on the inner side in both the hands, when only lifting weights ie. while doing dumbell curls or with barbels. I don't experience pain while doing other exercises. After doing dumbell curls, the pain persists for a long time. Initially i thought maybe due to lack of calcium in body, therefore I started to take CARVIC capsule, but the pain still exists even after taking this capsule for a week. Kindly suggest a suitable remedy for this.

My elbow pain is in my right elbow. When I get up out of bed in the morning, it feels like when you hit your "funny" bone. It only hurts when I first get out of bed.

I'm having pain in my right elbow. There's no swelling, redness, bruising or any other factors. When the skin of my elbow is moved or strained, I get a burning sensation underneath by skin. I also have pain keeping my arm bent like I have it now to type this message from my phone. I need some help.

I fell on my right elbow very hard, but it wasn't until I banged it on the car door post that it swelled up and really started to hurt. It has been this way for three / four weeks. The swelling won't go down.
