shoulder and elbow pain?

Many possibilities: Shoulder and elbow pain can be caused by a lot of things. The pain could be coming from local problems, such as tendonitis, bursitis or arthritis. The pain can also be referred from the neck due to a pinched nerve. Finally, although less likely, it could be due to an inflammatory condition.
