Injury: It hurts b/c you injured it. Duh, right? You didn't describe mechanism of injury but you might have torn something or stretched it or bruised it. Doesn't sound like you broke or dislocated anything. For now, try RICE (rest, ice, compression & elevation) to keep it from swelling up. If liver & kidneys are ok and you don't have allergies, consider OTC pain meds. See your FamilyDoc if not better. ...Read more

If the swelling has not improved and if it is still painful it would be worth a trip to the doctor to have an x-ray and have it evaluated. There are specific splints for thumb injuries like that. ...Read more

Based : Based on your description, it's unlikely that you had a bony or joint injury to your elbow. You may have strained the tendons on the "outside" or lateral side of your elbow.

I would not recommend immobilizing the elbow for an extended period of time. If it continues to bother you after several weeks, i would have it checked out. Your physician will determine if an x-ray would be necessary after an examination. ...Read more
