Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Pain when leaning on my elbow?

Depends

Bursitis
It depends on which side of your elbow and where the pain might be. If you are suffering pain right over the point of your elbow when you lean on it, it could be skin irritation to a bursitis. If you get it on the inside or outside (medial or lateral) aspects, then it is more likely tendon issues. I hope this helps a little and best of luck!

Sorry to hear that..

But without much more info there can be no diagnosis, if that is what you seek since you did not ask a question. Please see a local physician for an examination.

Epicondylitis in the elbow . What causes this.?

Overuse

Open-uri20130407-18247-1ezyd0f
Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or medial (golfer's elbow) are common overuse injuries to the elbow. In order to treat the pain, I recommend you start with RICE, follow with stretching/ strengthening (therapy), & consider couterforce bracing. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone or PRP injections. Some people end up needing surgery... <a href="<a href="http://drmar

Dr. Clarke Holmes answered:

Why would my elbow joints be making noises?

Several reasons

Knee_pain
Joints pop and crack and make all types of noises. If not painful, then we rarely worry about these noises. A shift in fluid or air, bone spurs, roughened cartilage or loose bodies (bone or cartilage) can all account for these noises. See your orthopedic doctor if these noises are accompanied by pain, loss of motion, weakness or locking of the joint.

Elbow pain

Thumb
Tendinitis or tendinosis of the medial or inner aspect of the elbow. This is the location where the muscles which flex your wrist and fingers originate. Symptoms would include pain and weakness in that location. It is similar to tennis elbow, which occurs on the outer aspect or lateral aspect of the elbow.
