Hi..

The MRI findings let's us know that your tendons are injured and inflammed may be due to overuse for a long time...tendons that are placed outer aspect of elbow...front and inner aspect of elbow all are inflamed...
There is tear in the outer aspect of elbow however it is a mild tear..
There is strain in the place where tendon and muscle meet...
There is tear along the mid portion of tendon on inner aspect of elbow as well..
There is a fluid filled sac to improve tendon sliding near buceos insertion point...which is swollen...
They will be painful on touch and while moving your elbow..
You can't lift any weight...
can't grip enough for a long time...
You might have pain radiating towards wrist...

Hope this is helpful for you
