Varies: There are multiple potential cause of painful, swollen elbows in a patient with no injury; not likely related directly to your atrial fibrillation or bad knees. Most common causes are usually arthritic or inflammatory such as gout or an ilex rankin bursitis for example. Don't hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis and discussion of treatment options.
