Radial head sublux: You need a physical exam to be sure, but you could have injuries of any kind, from early arthritis to a tendonitis. That being said, pain at end range of straightening out your elbow can be a mild subluxation of your radial head outside of the annular ligament. This is not serious or in need of surgery, but treatment would improve it. Consider seeing a do or chiro for adjustment of elbow.

See your doctor: These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you.
