Pain and nerves: They are both right! pain is transmitted by nerves. Tendons, ligaments, muscles and organs trigger the pain. Painful nerves, when they are the cause of the pain, send the pain shooting somewhere else, whether an inch from your elbow, or all the way to your hand, or up your arm. The most common cause of pain in that area is tennis elbow.
