Suggestions: Hard to pin down just one answer here, as you could possess an extensor tendinitis associated with peripheral nerve compression at elbow or even shoulder. Could consider thoracic outlet syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome or even radial nerve problem. See orthopedic surgeon, maybe get EMG study, and find out what is present so that therapy will be focused.
