Suggest treatment for elbow pain
A x ray is useful
I have studied your case. Pain in elbow can be due to tennis elbow. In this condition there is no role of blood test or x ray. Other cause can be arthritis of elbow. Before I advised you any further I would like to know little detail of the illness.
1. Since when you are having these symptoms?
2.Did you had any injury to elbow ?
3. Did you have Diabetes ?
please send me answers of these questions. I will try my best to help you. thanks

You need to stop few of these medication
I have studied your case. I think you have tennis elbow. You need to apply tennis elbow band at elbow which you can get at any medical store. It should be applied during day time and at night you can remove it. Along with this hot water fomentation is also useful.
For medication you are taking number 11 is most serious of all. It is a steroid and taking it for long time is not advised. I would recommend you to discuss with your doctor and stop it gradually. Remember it cannot be stopped immediately as it can cause withdrawal symptoms. Meloxicam can also be stopped as it is a pain killer but it is not good for heart patient specially those on warfarin.
I hope this answer will be useful for you. Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
