My painful elbow joint?

I was tying my hair in a ponytail (my elbows bent and facing upwards) before walking into a fairly narrow corridor. As I walked into the corridor, my right elbow banged really hard into the wall at the side. There was a slight cracking sound and it hurt quite a lot but I didn’t think too much of it as I figured the pain would go away quickly like any other scrape or bang.

However, now, several hours later, it still hurts. I mean its not a deathly pain where I can’t concentrate on anything else, but it is really sore and achey whenever I make the slightest elbow movement.

Will it go away soon?
Do I need to see a doctor or anything?

    Put ice on it rapped in a cover, If it still hurts in about 6 hours go to the hospital, it may be broken.

    Give it at least a few days to begin healing. I would however, watch over it closely and if the pain begins getting worse instead of better, than I would definitely seek medical attention. You can take 200-400mg of Advil (Ibuprofen) every 4-6 hours to help alleviate the pain and swelling. If your physician okay’s it you can also take 800mg of Ibuprofen every 8 hours. As long as it is for a short interval of time it won’t hurt you.
