In brief: Tendinitis

U need to be examined if your pain persists.
Elbow pain w/ pronation as u described could be medial epicondylitis ("golfer's elbow"). Seen also in people who weight lift and in many other activities.Usually the elbow is tender to touch on the 'inside bump'( medial epicondyle).Try a NSAID ( ibuprofen) for a few days . If not improved see your md for exam
