Acute Pain On Crazy Bone Of Elbow When Leaning On It

Crazy bone: No. Your symptoms should resolve with time. If not improving seek a medical opinion.
Random, infrequently, acute, & deep (like my bones are being crushed) pain that goes from my elbow to my hand. Braces & OTC meds fail. What can I do?
Not an easy answer: In order to make a diagnosis of atypical problems a doc needs to take into account a lot of data and put the clinical picture together. This is what old-school "art of medicine" is. You mention CT scan (of what? And b/l mastectomy? for what? Breast CA? Or prophylaxis? Many things factor into a diagnosis.

Nagging ache in right arm & upper shoulder towards the neck. Reminds me of when you pump your crazy bone in your elbow.
Normal: Its normal for the inner elbow to stick out. In most people its not that noticeable. In some its increased and may be due to old trauma and resulting deformity. If there is a side to side difference, its best to have it x-rayd by your orthopedist.
I have pain in my left elbow, no injury, suddenly it started, not in bone even cannot hold mobile.
Inflammation: Inflammatory conditions like tendonitis or epicondylitis can start like this. Try cold applications and later switch to heat, avoid stressing the elbow, and if you can take them, NSAIDS like ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) usually help. If no improvement see an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment such as corticosteroid injection.
Olecracranon: The bone is called the olecranon process of the elbow.
Matters which bone: It matters which bone in the elbow was chipped.

Usually a sling for a few days to a week is needed then gentle motion is started. See your md to get the definitive diagnosis.
Yes: It could done by opening the elbow or could be done with arthroscopy of the elbow (small hole on each sides).
Several potentials: If there has been an associated injury, a fracture could certainly cause swelling and soreness. An infection is also a possibility, especially if there is associated redness and/or warmth. Olecranon bursitis is a condition at the elbow which can also cause swelling and pain. See a physician if symptoms persist.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a shooting like pain that starts inbetween my elbow bones and go down to my hand. What is this?

Rest and anti-inflammatories along with ergonomic evaluation are often needed to get better.
Depends: If outside the joint shouldn't be more than a few weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Bone aches: What you're experiencing is actually not bubbles or air pockets it's essentially the synovial fluid or bursa sacs which act as a lubricants to allow your joints to move freely. If the bursae is inflamed it will retain fluid and thus make your joint feel like it's has pressure or air in it. Hope this helps to clarify things!
