why does my elbow hurt?

I woke up a few days ago and my elbow was killing me. I waited a day thinking I must have done something when I was sleeping to hurt it. But its been like 3 days and I cant use my left arm without feeling a really strong pain in the elbow. I am thinking I have not done any sports in a few weeks and I did not hit my elbow into anything and its not the way I sleep so why is my elbow hurting me? Thanks in advance.
well then if I have not done any sports have not hit it in any way and did not injure it during the night then what would cause the pain?

    Have you tried taking Motrin? Motrin helps relieve pain and it is an anti-inflammatory so it will help reduce swelling. Since the pain has persisted for 3 days I would probably make an appointment with my doctor to get an x-ray. You may have a small fracture espcially since you having pain anytime you move it.
