Tendonitis. : Golfer's elbow is a inflammation of the tendons that insert on the inside of your elbow (close to the funny bone). Usually it causes pain with pressing on the area or with certain wrist movements. The tendons are from the muscles that flex the wrist down so sometimes this motion can aggravate the pain. There can also be tingling associated with it. Often it has nothing to do with golf!
