    I would need to see your form in order to give you a realistic answer. I assume you’re just not throwing it right. You really shouldn’t be using your elbow much at all. If you were simply throwing too much, your shoulder would typically be the first thing to get sore.

    Well it depends. Are you attempting breaking pitches or are you just having a catch? Breaking pitches put stress on the elbow which is why kids are encouraged to stay away from throwing them until they are maturely developed. The basic answer is that throwing a ball hard overhand is not a natural motion. This is why pitchers ice their arms and wait several days before their next start. Softball pitchers throw underhand and can pitch everyday because the underhand motion is natural.

    Ask a doctor.

    You might be throwing with all elbow, which can lead to a very sore elbow. I suggest icing it for fifteen minutes on and off until your elbow heals. As for your shoulder, you are simply throwing too hard or too much, take a little off of your throws and ice that as well.
