Elbow pain when straightening arm?

My Elbow Hurts When I Straighten My Arm


My elbow starting to hurt a little bit/feel kinda sore last night. Usually, I can just “crack” my elbow (straighten all the way), and it’d feel better, but that didn’t work this time.

When I woke up this morning and tried straightening my arm, I get a sharp pain “under” or below the elbow joint, mostly on the inside/center of my arm, rather than the outside. It’s also feels sore and hurts to touch.

Could it be from playing violin so much? And how do I relieve some of the pain?

    sounds like what i have which is epicondylitis or a severe case of tendonitis. its the tendons tearing and tightening. its formed from over use of your elbow, you could have over used it depending on how exactly you play the violin like how much use is being put on your elbow. you can ice it, take ibuprofen, stretch it, and rest it.

    Ahhh i had this problem once. It sounds like a trapped nerve of some sort. Mine lasted a couple of days until it just went on it’s own so i think it just takes times. However taking a warm bath could help!
