In brief: See a doc!
It's difficult to determine this over the internet without a good exam. Icing the area is a good idea, along with antiinflammatories, such as Aleve (naproxen) or Motrin intermittently.
But if this has been persistent over 1-2 weeks, then it should be examined by a doctor.

In brief: Evaluation by M.D.
Bony pain in your elbow that has not resolved for over a month is an indication for evaluation by your physician.
X-rays will likely be required to determine your exact diagnosis.

In brief: What's new?
Put on your detective hat & think of clues.
What new activities were you doing right before your arm started complaining? Other prime suspects: exercises, more digital time? If you can find the trigger, you can prevent re-injury. Good luck. Feel better.
