Suffering from elbow pain. Is it because of over usage of computer keyboard ?

Hi, I am 27 year old , I have been suffering because of the mild Elbow pain for last 2 years . I am a soft ware engineer by proffession. I am not sure why this could have happened because of over usage of computer keyborad or for lifting some waits. previously it was for both the elbows and toe middle bone . now its only to the Right Elbow I have got fed up seeing orthopedicians . one doctor has taken Xray and given 8-9 pills a day .. when I have changed the doctor . He asked me to go through some blood tests which came very normal. he asked me to take some mild pain killers there after , but it was of no use .. he just kept changing the pain killers but nothing came out. Finally I stoped seeing doctors and started to live with the pain. I am not sure who treats with this kinda of disease .. I suspect it may be something like .. Tennis elbow , Golfers elbow or orthitis ..but i dont have any swelling .. for some relive intially I have tried massaging with some oils and some Iceing and Resting & wearing elbow gaurds . but it was just temporary relive .. I didn t have any .. i need some permanaent solution So Please advice which Doctor i have to see to get rid of this Please suggest me some good solution for this

hi..see ur prob is mainly because of faulty ergonomic of ur work station which has cased RSI(repetitive stress injury)..there is continous stress on the muscle and tendon which cause inflammation and pain.
for permanent solution u need to do followings:
1. design ur work station ergonomically.
2. consult a physiotherapist for treatment
3. use elbow band and apply ice thrice daily.
4. do exercises daily to strengthen ur muscle. (prescribed by physiotherapist)
