Doctor:sorry about that
Doctor:proceed further
User:There is no pain when I press it
User:However, when flexing or stretching the arm there is a mild discomfort

Doctor:there could be a possible muscle spasm
User:I have a 13 month old kid and keep carrying him around primarily on my right arm
Doctor:You could do some relaxation and stretching exercises of the elbow
User:so the elbow tends to remain in the same position for long
Doctor:that is the spasm

User:Thank you Dr.
Doctor:get well soon
Doctor:pleasure is mine, anytime
