My elbow has hurt for over a year now?

im 15 years old and my elbow will not stop hurting. It comes and goes on a daily basis and I cannot move my arm because the pain is so strong. It surrounds the entire joint and I believe it is tendinitis that wont heal. (I am a twirler all year around and a tennis player) What do you think it is possibly?

Thank you 🙂

    It sounds like you have may have identified the source of the problem, but the pain could also be nerve inflammation, or it could be caused by some type of damage to the cartilage in your elbow. In any case, the injury is likely a result of overuse. If so, if you keep twirling and playing tennis before the condition has healed completely, you could cause irreversible damage to your elbow or entire arm. It would be a good idea to stop these activities until you can visit an orthopedic doc and find out exactly what is wrong.
