    I had that once, don’t play tennis either. It comes from over usage. Rest it as much as possible. Go to your pharmacy & ask them for a "wrap" that goes around your forearm for tennis elbow. I got one when I had this and it helped a great deal. It took about a week before it finally went away ~ after I purchased & used the wrap.

    Tennis elbow comes from straining the elbow joint, tendons and ligaments. Instead of the bending action that an elbow does naturally, the joint is forced from side to side, putting more pressure on one side or the other. It’s called tennis elbow because it’s common among tennis players, although it’s not exclusive to them.

    As far a help, a good massage therapist can do wonders, but finding a good one who knows how to work on tennis elbow isn’t always easy. A physical therapist would be a good choice to check out.
