As there are numerous muscles and tendons that cross the elbow joint, it is most likely that. However, other sources of pain should be ruled out by your doctor. Read more

I am 20 days away from marriage. My face color is dark brown unlike rest of my body. I need to make my face fair.
Don't try it: If you try to lighten your face, you'll disfigure yourself. What your wife wants is a good lover who knows how to use his entire body, a responsible man who'll provide and protect her and treat her decently.
