First things first: If you have pain with activity over your medial elbow, try resting and icing it first. If the pain goes away, try using a neoprene brace with activity. If the pain persists, and especially if you have tingling or weakness, then seek medical attention. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Yes: Let your doctor help make an appropriate diagnosis and definitive treatment. This will aid in faster healing. Limit activity of this joint. Home remedies include ice, range of motion exercises about 4 times a day. If not allergic to NSAIDS or have any contraindications, use as recommended on the insert.

Tennis Elbow: The ligamentous inflammation of tennis elbow usually resolves on its own in 4-6 weeks, but can be helped faster with rest, ice packs and regular use of Advil (ibuprofen) or Motrin. In particularly painful cases, steroid injections can be administered for nearly instantaneous relief. Prolonged or changing symptoms should be evaluated by an orthopedic physician.

See your doctor: to rule out any other disorder and to prevent future complications.Tennis elbow often gets better on its own or with home remedies: ice, rest and OTC NSAIDs for pain. Good luck.
