Sore left elbow

Hello fellow drummers

Today I was practicing my single stroke roll and I started noticing a weird feeling in my left elbow. It seems like there's a constant pressure on it while I play and a couple of minutes after I stop and this only happens when I'm practicing single stroke rolls.
Most of my movement is coming from my wrists but I think I tend to tense my left arm while playing. My right arm however does not have this problem (I am right-handed).
Has anyone ever experienced the same thing, and if so do you perhaps know any ways to avoid a sore elbow while playing?
