What causes pain in an elbow?

I have severe pain in my left inner elbow with what feels like a knot/swelling over the medial epicondyl. I am an RN, and have had what they thought was golfers elbow in the right elbow, with a steroid injection, with little relief. This is in my left. I am going to an Ortho hand Dr next Monday, but I am concerned if it could be fluid or a cyst, or just inflammation.

Hi,

It may be golffer elbow, but to make exact diagnosis get xray of involved elbow done in AP and ly view and send me the report.

For differentiating swelling or cyst you need to have physical examination by orthopedic surgeon as without examination nothing can be said.

You may upload the picture if you can, I will help you definitely by seeing picture of elbow.

Till then have tab.aceclofenac100mg +serratiopeptidase15mg thrice a day by prescription.

Thanks,

Dr.CHANDER MOHAN SINGH
