Possibility of tendinitis of the triceps causing tingling

Hello, I recently began bowling in a Monday night league. We have played 8 weeks now. Just last week, before bowling, I noticed a sort of tingling in the muscle area above the elbow. In the last few days what was a dull tingling had turned to periodic sort of burning. I think it may be tendinitis of the tricep. I bowl again this Monday. Should I ice it? Should I bowl w/ a sleeve on? I m more concerned about being ready for softball in 2 weeks. Thanks
