I am a 45 year old male. Played sports and work in the logging industry. My elbow joints started to get stiff and sore over the past year. It has got progressively worse, especially in my right elbow. I now have a bruise that has developed on the inside of my elbow. If my elbow stays in the same position for a period of time, it is difficult to move. Lifting is very painful, but not to the point where I can 't function. What do you think?
