Forearm/Elbow Pain Diagnosis?

I’m a pretty regular disc golfer for almost 2 years, about 2-3 times per week. I’ve had some on again off again pain in my forearm below my elbow. Today I hurt it big time playing. I have free range of motion in my arm without pain, the pain is weight bearing related. I cannot push down with my hand without searing, dull pain all around the thickest part of my forearm.

The closest thing to compare the pain to is if your arm was wrenched the wrong way in an arm bar hold. There is no swelling nor bruising, I can move my fingers and hand freely, no numbness, just godawful pain when I push down or rest it with only my hand supporting the arm. It seems to be more along the ulna bone rather then the radius. Does that sound like tendonitis, bone bruise, tendon/ligament pull? It didn’t sound like tennis elbow but I’m not ruling anything out.

What does this sound like and what should I do about it? I’ve already started the R.I.C.E regiment but other ideas would be nice, especially preventative/rehab related. Thanks.

    could be impingement of radial ulnar nerve- this would cuse the type of pain you described- go see a doctor.

    I think that golf sport is good for your body but be careful on the things you do because it may cause you trouble in your body parts. I think you should consult your doctor about your problem.
