How do you know if you did anything serious to your elbow?

I feel on my elbow and it hurts pretty bad. I have some bruising and i can’t stretch it out all the way without it hurting. Also, when i bend it, it hurts. My fingers tingle a little bit and so does my arm every once in a while. I don’t know if i just bruised it or did anything serious. Any suggestions?

    I did the exact same thing when I was in grade 1. The ER doctor said that I had scratched the air bag. It’s actually called Bursitis. It is really annoying but it’ll go away on it’s own. You can try wrapping it with a tensor band-aid and using a sling which will relieve pressure. You should also go to the doctor to make sure it isn’t a break or pinched nerve!

    If your fingers are tingling, you may have hit your funny bone, or you could have fractured it.
