Thanks for writing to us.
If tennis elbow has been ruled out then a nerve irritation in the area is the likely cause of your symptoms. A nerve conduction study will help in confirmation of the diagnosis. A local steroid injection is likely to help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
