u could have tennis elbow which means u have to have an injection in your elbow and u r only aloud 3 all together

The other advice i can give you is stop lifting heavy things

Elbow pain can be caused by a variety of problems. A common cause in adults is tendinitis, an inflammation and injury to the tendons -- soft tissues that attach muscle to bone.

Other common causes of elbow pain are:

Bursitis -- inflammation of a fluid-filled cushion beneath the skin
Arthritis -- narrowing of the joint space and loss of cartilage in the elbow
Elbow strains
Infection of the elbow
Home Care:
In adults, the following steps can help treat many cases of elbow pain:

When you first notice the pain, apply ice up to 15 minutes every hour for the first day. Continue to apply ice every 3 to 4 hours for up to 3 days. Wrap the ice in a cloth -- do not apply ice directly to the skin.
Wrap the elbow with a bandage, such as an ACE bandage. You may need an air splint to keep the elbow immobilized.
Keep the elbow elevated above your heart, if possible.
Give the elbow joint complete rest for at least 2 days. DO NOT return to the activity that caused the problem for at least 3 weeks. Then, gradually strengthen the muscles around your elbow. A physical therapist can teach you how to do this.
While you are resting the joint, take pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
After the initial rest period, you should begin to gradually strengthen the muscles around the elbow through gentle flexibility exercises.

Use ice or ibuprofen after the activity to prevent swelling and pain, if you have had an elbow injury in the past.

Wear an "elbow band" over an injured or rehabilitated area to prevent further injury and reduce pain.
Perform regular stretching and strengthening exercises (given to you by your physical therapist or doctor).

Arthritis hun! I had a really bad infection in my elbow about 10 years ago and since then, I have had arthritis in it.

I get joint pain when lifting weights, it's pretty common, however you may want to go to the doctor to check it out, you may also be lifting stuff wrong, or possible have arthitis.

i used to get that pain from when i lifted weights. i went to the doctor they told me to take a lot of ib profen (spelling) for about a week striaght, that should kill the pain. try to not lift anything heavy either during that week, that will also help heal it...hope that helps

I am with Jonathan on this one.

This could be what's called 'phantom pain'. It usually happens in cases of people who've lost limbs, but it can also happen if your fractured or dislocated a limb.
I dislocated my leg some time ago, and I sometimes get phantom pains in my knee if I do anything particularly physical.
I'd suggest doing some light physio therapy for around five minutes in the morning, just to warm up your arms and ease any pain.
Hope this helped!!

Patient: Doctor it hurts when I raise my arm like this.
Doctor: Well don't do it then.

Same applies - don't lift heavy things.

I'm shocked at the frivelous answers people have given! I'm a medical doctor and one should never draw any diagnosis before a full history including all the relevant questions, a complete examination and relevant investigations.......this pain could be due to inflammation following overuse/misuse of the joint, an infectious arthritis, tennis elbow, bursitis, osteoarthritis (depeding on age) ect...ect.....a full clinical assessment is important.

EDIT: in response to the person who claims experience and has diagnosed 'fantom' pains.....I can't believe the audacity to think everyone else has what you have. After 6 years of medical trainings and 3 years of post-graduate hospital training I dont make fly-by conjectures because it can be misleading, I suggest you do the same.
