Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern.

I wonder if you have tennis elbow, which is a type of tendinitis. Swelling of the tendons causes pain in the elbow and arm.

Repetitive arm movements or gripping can lead to this.

Have you ever had an MRI of your arm? Such an imaging test can diagnosis tennis elbow or rule out other problems.
