Could be tendinitis: there may be more than one etiology of this but my first consideration would be tendinitis, The pattern going down the arm to suggest this and we need to know where on the arm you feel the tenderness.

Often discomfort doesn't peak for 24-48 hours after such activity. Try to limit such movements to see if improves. ...Read more
