Really bruised elbow?

Well, i played dodgeball last monday for like over an hour, and i was throwing the ball really hard, and i worked out a bit before that, but yeah
after playing dodgeball that day the joint really close to my elbow and tricep was hurting so badly
and since last monday its been paining like crazy, i played only 8 minutes of dodgeball again on wednesday, but now its friday, and its still paining like crazy?
and everytime i do a bit of exercise like jogging, or something its paining like crazy after again?
well what could i do to stop all this pain? and im gonna workout with a friend on sunday for sure, but i hope it feels better by then.
Is there any elbow or arm bands i could get that will prevent injury?
if so, any names and stores i could get them at?
i found this elbow/arm band kinda thing for tennis lol at walmart, but im not sure if i should get that
thanks 🙂

    It sounds like epicondylitis. If you press on the muscle right below the outer part of your elbow on your lower arm and if hurts then you have strained that muscle and it is inflammed. This is more commonly known as Tennis Elbow. This happens by vigorous overuse of your arm. It probably happened when you were playing dodge ball and throwing the ball too hard. The arm band you saw at Walmart would help with the pain. Just make sure you don’t put it on too tight. The best thing you can do right now is to avoid excessive use of this arm. In other words I wouldn’t plan on working out on Sunday. You need to rest your arm for a few weeks and it probably would be a good idea to see a doctor just to make sure you don’t have any tendon or ligament damage.
    This is a good article about this.
