Sensitive area on the lateral bone of the arm, elbow pain on extending and retracting the arm after elbow injury. No improvement with hot and cold compresses. Remedy?

40yo male, ...I am not sure how it happened but I injured my elbow 2 months ago. The lateral bone has a small sensitive (to touch) area. When I extend my arm fully, it causes elbow pain and when i retract my arm fully (as if doing a curl), it causes pain as well. I have tried heat/cold/rest/exercise, with NO improvement in the 2 months.

I would suggest you to get x ray and MRI of the elbow joint to find out if there is any cartilage or ligament damage from inside. There is also chances of tennis elbow. After getting MRI i can offer you some definite treatment. Also till that time you should take pain killers like Brufen and hot water fomentation.You should also apply compression bandage.
