Elbow Pain: You are primarily complaining of having pain after hitting your elbow and describing Ulnar nerve compression. As the symptoms have been persistent for more than a week it is likely that U have traumatized this nerve and you can try using NSAIDs as tolerated. If symptoms are persistent he should have an EMG performed to evaluate for severity of ulnar neuropathy.I hope this helps.
