What causes pain in the right elbow?

I have had moderate to severe right elbow pain for 3 months. The elbow is very stiff and hurts when I bend the arm. At times it hurts at rest. Could this be tendonitis or something else? I have psoriatic arthritis and my rheumatologist seems to think it could be a symptom of that. The pain is now traveling from my elbow down my forearm and in to my fingers.

There is a large range of differential diagnosis for the elbow pain as overuse, sprain, strains, elbow fracture elbow, throwing injuries, trapped nerves, tennis elbow, inflammatory conditions as osteoarthritis, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, stress fractures, etc.

Require thorough physical examination with orthosurgeon and get proper diagnosis with supportive data of x-ray, MRI according to the case needs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
