Thanks for posting your query.

Pain in elbow and arm seems to be due to muscle spasm. It could also be due to stress.
Doing hot fomatation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful to relieve the pain and spasm. You can also take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce the pain and inflammation.

Be relax and do not take stress. If the pain persists, I suggest you to get it evaluated by an orthopaedic for detailed clinical examination.

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
Please accept my answer if you have no further query.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
