Numerous events and factors can lead to pain in the joint between the upper and lower arm. Elbow pain can be caused by bumping the "funny bone," dislocating the joint, or stressing the tendons or muscles in the area.
Symptoms vary based on the cause of elbow pain. However, the main indicators of a problem with the elbow include discomfort or soreness and a decreased range of motion. Elbow injury can cause a weak grip, tingling from the elbow down to the fingertips, and even nausea. The pain may feel like it is coming from the bone, joint, muscle, or tendons, and may be felt when the elbow is bent, straightened, in motion, or any combination of these.
