Pain in elbow, suffering from stress. Is this related to age?

Hi there, just over the past few weeks I have started getting pains in my elbows. I am normally quite fit and do yoga every morning. I have recently had problems in my family and have suffered some stress . Wonder if it could be related, or perhaps it is just age related. I am female and am 64. Thanks for your help.

Elbow pain can not be stress related.
It can be age related or may related to your work like washing cloths.
Do u have any swelling in elbow?
Take a 5 day course of analgesic and muscle relaxant with a pantroparazole.
Take rest for 7 days.
If no problem thereafter then no worry but if persists then consult a orthopedician.
