Elbow Pain

I have an acute case of elbow pain. It came on the other day, and now my arm hurts when i pronate it, causing shooting pains down inside and thumbside of my arm. It also hurts to make full extension. Any ideas what the problem is, and what I should to heal up quickly.

Sounds as if you may have aggravated your ulnar nerve or just tendonitis rest and ice.Im a carpenter and go through bouts like this off and on if it gets worse or the pain doesnt subside see an md or ortho you dont want to cause any long term tendon damage.

Don’t guess when it comes to inujuries like this…if it’s doesn’t start to improve in a day or so, get some professional help? see a qualified doc.
