HOW LONG IS PAIN SUPPOSED TO LAST IF I HAVE TENNIS ELBOW/TENDONITIS?

I popped my elbow a week ago, had a splint and got a MRI yesterday. Results wont be ready till tomorrow. It did still hurt yesterday at my MRI when they put it at this angle. How long is the supposed to last? Cause now when I straighten it, it doesn’t hurt. Could I still have one of the 2 problems and the pain is going but still needs to be treated?

    IF you have tendinitis it will last as long as you continue to abuse it. By that I mean continuing to do the motion you did which got you in trouble. However, if you heard a pop all sorts of things could have happened. Wait for the tests and you will know. If you tore a tendon and didn’t just inflame it you are going to be out of tennis for a while. Sorry.
