Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you are suffering from the tennis elbow which has entrapped the nerve also causing the symptoms.
You need to give adequate rest to your arm. Anti inflammatory medicines and hot fomentation will help in an early recovery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
