Help with “Javelin Elbow”?

I went and saw an orthopedic doctor today about my injured elbow from volleyball. The doctor said it was javelin elbow(similar to tennis elbow, just pain is underneath instead of on top) and so he gave me a brace. He said to wear it every day, all day, except when i sleep. Today was my first day wearing it, and not only my elbow, but my whole arm and hand hurt really bad when i just touched it, and when i wrote and that kind of stuff. It was also turning weird colors like purplish and red, and it got swollen. Is this normal? I took it off because it seemed a little strange, so do i keep it off? is this supposed to happen?
I am pretty sure it wasnt on to tight. The doctor said it should be tight so it puts pressure on my tendons, and if it was to tight my vains wold be popping out, which didnt happen… I am also thinking it might be a problem with my nerve. thats what the first doctor i saw said. If it was a nerve, that may have been what caused the pain and swelling? But i dont know. I would think that after a while the nerve would heal on its own, because it’s been about a year since the injury. I have barely used my elbow since then. I quit volleyball, and the only time i use it is in school when we play for P.E., and soccer when i am goalie. and just doing little things like wiping the table down it hurts sometimes. But anyway, im starting to think its NOT "javelin elbow". what do you think?

    Try getting a penis elbow instead, less painful.
