In brief: An x-ray
The best way to diagnose a fracture a bone or joint is my getting an x-ray.
This coupled with an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon will establish the diagnosis and determine the treatment plan.

In brief: Exam and xray
If you have persistent, severe pain and a sufficient mechnism in which you could have fractured your elbow (such as a fall), then an exam and xray to see if you have fractured your elbow would be strongly encouraged.
