Elbow pain usually isn’t serious, but because you use your elbow in so many ways, elbow pain can definitely affect your life.
Your elbow is a complex joint that allows you to extend and flex your forearm and rotate your hand and forearm. Most movements are a combination of these actions, and you may sometimes find it difficult to describe what exactly brings on the pain.
Common causes of elbow pain include:
Cubital tunnel syndrome, which occurs when the ulnar nerve on the inside of your elbow is irritated or injured
Ligament sprains and tears
Olecranon bursitis — inflammation of a small sac of fluid (olecranon bursa) on the tip of your elbow
Radial tunnel syndrome, which occurs when the radial nerve becomes compressed just beyond your elbow (sometimes called resistant tennis elbow)
Sprains and strains
