Do you have pain on the outer aspect of your elbow ?
It appears you could be having a condition called Golfer's elbow where the muscles and tendons get inflammed near the elbow due to the motion and stress
of forearms during Golf.
infection usually relieves pain in this region. Surgery may be done to relieve the stress in that region. This should be curative and pain will not be there but there may be some restriction to your playing habits after surgery for a few weeks. This time requires complete rest.
You can apply Diclofenac
gel on the painful area of the elbow. Also take Acetaminophen
, under medical supervision. This should give some relief till the surgery. Avoid golfing for a while till you get cured.
Wishing speedy recovery.
