Default Sharp pain in left elbow when playing

So it started off as dull pain throughout the day like a week ago, so it was almost inflamed i guess. Now the pain has subsided, but while playing i end up having sharp pain inside my elbow. I don't think it's tennis elbow since touching it doesn't have any pain. This sucks so bad, but i guess i learned the hard way that i need to play relaxed :D Anything that i could do to help it heal better?

I had a pain similar to this - after some X-rays they found that a disc in my upper spine was touching the nerve which goes to my left arm. A series of chiropractic adjustments cleared it up after a couple of months.

+2 without xrays and a degree in medicine and being able to physically examine you there is no way for anyone here to diagnose your issue.

I think you should consult with a doctor. My brother was dealing with Tendon pain he was diagnosed with shoulder tendonitis, it helped him to alleviate symptoms as well as strengthen the area of injury. The doctor has also recommended him to go through a warm water therapy by installing a walk in tubs in Renton because these tubs have a hydro-jet water therapy, which strategically placed in the tub to target those tight, aching areas that could use a little soothing.

And cut back on the waffles. Seriously. See a doctor. We all have aches and pains, and trust me it's gets worse with age. Get it corrected now by seeing the right person. His/her name will have MD. or DO. at the end.

Sounds like tennis elbow to me. Or if you rest your elbow on the door when you drive your car that can cause it as well. I use Ibuprofen...(can I say that here?)
