It seems that you have sustained soft tissue injury of your forearm muscles because of overuse. the pain on sides of our elbow joint is also the result of inflammation (swelling) of the flexor muscles of our forearm where they attach to forearm bone. your need not to worry much. you should take muscle relexants, give appropriate rest to your forearm and the pain will subside in a 10-15 days.
take care.
