Anyone get sore ligaments, muscles from French grip fingers technique for fast single stroke rolls?

I've finally started investing more time into my single stroke rolls by focusing on the French Grip - finger technique. (that grip Jojo Mayer does in his DVD). After a few weeks of practice, a definite improvement. However during my practice, that muscle, tendon (??) area near the elbow and upper forearm begins to burn. My research shows it's kinda like a tennis elbow ailment. I don't play tennis nor do I golf (wish I did though :).

Have you guys ever experienced that burning sensation in the upper forearm?
I use one of those compression straps and it seems to work. Though I do realize that I've just started focusing on this so maybe I need to get used to it.

Any suggestions or feedback as always would be great.

Yeah, I had that - radial tunnel I think it's called. But not from French grip. It was much bigger movements did it to me, like a bad swing at a badly placed cymbal
