Brief Answer:
Possibly tendon inflammation

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thank you for your question.

It sounds like inflammation in one of the tendon in your forearm which can give pain localised around the elbow and radiates up and down.

Try to use anti-inflammatory gel over the most painful area for few days.
If no improvement then take anti inflammatory tablets such as ibuprofen 400mg 3 times a day after meals if no contraindication to it.

I hope that I have answered your question adequately. If you have further concern please do write back

Wish you get speedy recovery
