How to tell if your elbow is broken?

I hit my elbow really hard off a wall by accident, and after i did it i almost fainted. It hurts really bad (without moving it) and everytime i try to move it it like squeaks, and the whole bottom half of my arm is numb.

    you could have fractured something or damaged a nerve get it checked out hope this helps. also if you hit your funny bone hard it can cause those sensations

    if you cant move it, its probably broken or fractured. go to hospital to get it checked out right away.

    Wow you should definitely go to an urgent care. If you can’t move it and it hurts, it really might be broken. I remember when I broke my elbow, my arm tingled and I couldn’t stretch out my elbow all the way. I’m not sure if it is broken or fractured or what, but you really do need to go see a doctor.

    Sounds like it’s broken. Call the orthopaedic doctor and ask him to meet you in the emergency room. Better yet call a orthopaedic hand and upper extremity doctor it may need a subspecialist. Better yet go to the Mass General Hospital and call Dr. J.P. Warner he’s chief of Elbow and Shoulder.
