All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your ferritin levels are not a cause for concern.

You : You could try simple measures such as over-the-counter medication, like Ibuprofen or aleve; however, it seems to me that it might be worth your while to seek additional input from your primary care physician. Three weeks is a rather lengthy time to have persistent loss of motion of the elbow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What should I do for a swollen elbow my brother had fallen earlier today and fell on his elbow. It then began to swell and a huge bubble looking thing formed above the elbow and its briusing around it....There is also a minor cut/scrape on top of the bubb
You : You should see a doctor. While it sounds like you might have a bursal swelling/bleeding you should have an evaluation that includes a good exam and x-rays to properly evaluate the bone and joints of the elbow as well as so-called soft tissue i.E ligaments, tendons, and nerves and especially ulnar nerve. Elbow injuries even without fracture or dislocation can quickly lead to stiffness. Also though from your description it's unlikely you want to make sure you don't develop any kind of infection from the cut that might possibly communicate with the joint. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
