Painful bump above elbow causing pain on lifting arm extending to armpit. Remedy?

I was doing push-ups the other day and noticed a while after I had a lightly painful bump under my skin right above my right elbow on the side of my arm . Also some pain when lifting my arm up high, running under my bicep all the way up and under my armpit. Then i woke up the next day with the same type of lump as the first one right above my collar bone, on the right side also. I m almost positive it is something to do with the tendon ...but not 100%. Would should i do?

Hi, The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain.
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not lift weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for the injury to heal.
