Take some NSAIDs and: rest the arm, apply some Ice pack for 15 minutes every 2-3 hrly, and do gently exercises of the hand and wrist as well as elbow. If no increasing pains and U are able to do these, then you probably have bruised your arm only. If increasing pain or not improving get seen and maybe an Xray might be needed. Good Luck and Happy Holidays.
