Brief Answer:
Could be tennis elbow or elbow joint arthritis.

Detailed Answer:
I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.

In my opinion pain and stiffness in the right elbow could be due to a condition like tennis elbow or joint arthritis.

I suggest you start pain killers, muscle relaxants and continue heating pads. It might take a few days for the pain to go away. If it does not then X ray of the elbow may be required.

Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
