Can someone describe the difference in how tennis elbow and a hyperextended elbow feel?

I hurt my elbow awhile ago. I think it’s a hyperextended elbow, since the pain is in the same spot where I did it once before. But I also had tendinitis in the same wrist that keeps crawling up the arm. I’m curious if the two injuries are easy to differentiate.

    Tennis elbow is felt in the elbow, not the wrist, and usually on the lateral side. A hyperextended elbow will cause pain in the back of the elbow, and may radiate down into the forearm.

    Tennis elbow is more of a dull achy pain, while a sharper pain will be felt from a hyperextended elbow because there is likely to be damage to the bone in the area.
