Elbow pain is often the result of overuse, repetitive strain or injury to the joint and surrounding tendons. The pain is caused by an inflammation of the tendon that connects the surrounding muscle to the bones of the elbow. Symptoms associated with elbow pain vary from painful burning sensation, tenderness, weakness of the wrist and forearm, difficulty flexing the forearm and pain from lifting, gripping and carryings items.
