Cerivical radiculiti: Sounds like you have a herniated disc or pinched nerve in your neck. Reproduction of the pain and numbness while bending your neck to the affected side is called a positive "spurling's sign". Your shoulder blade pain is also characteristic of this. Would start with some otc antiiflams and if pain persists or weakness develops in hand or numbness persists would seek attention.

Locked elbow: Very important to make sure you do not have a spontaneous infection. If you have any fever redness or lots of pain with motion go to ER or your family doctor and get this checked out ASAP. If not infected could be a loose body or other soft tissue structure getting stuck in the elbow joint. Go to an orthopedic surgeon and get 3Vs xrays of the elbow done. If Xrays negative then get MRI.

Olecranon bursitis: The olcranon process is the back of the hunge joint at the elbow. A bursa is a sac that sits over the outside of a joint to cushion the soft tissues from injury. The olecranon bursa can become inflamed, usually from trauma, like leaning a lot on your elbows. An inflamed bursa is called a bursitis. It is often treated with anti-inflammatoies, ace wraps, aspiration of fluid, or a cortisone injection.

Elbow pain for over 2 weeks. Xrays neg. Still hurts. Why? Nerve damage? Tissue damage? Swollen and tender. No visible bruise.

Inflammation: Swelling denotes inflammation. X-rays being negative means no fracture and you are too young to have osteoarthritis. The inflammation could be tendonitis, bursitis, or some type of inflammatory arthritis depending on where the swelling is located. See an orthopedic surgeon or a rheumatologist if you have not received a diagnosis and plan at this point.
