When I woke up 8 days ago, my left elbow

When I woke up 8 days ago, my left elbow was in much pain. I don't remember bumping it or anything like that. It is considerably swollen, painful to the touch, and is colored a bright red, and is even very warm to the touch. I haven't called my Dr. because I thought it would go away. (Don't know if this is related but when I woke up this morning I had a red "blotch on the top side of my hand which I've never had before). I know it's tough to make a diagnosis over the web but an you give me any advice? Thank you,

4 days ago when I woke up, I noticed a huge bruise on my left arm right above my elbow, but on the inside. It was very hard and swollen like a golf ball in my arm and I don t remember banging it or anything and it didn t really hurt. Now the swelling is going down and the bruise is healing but there is a hard lump right in the middle of the bruise. Then today I noticed another hard lump on the inside of my left forearm! Its a smaller lump, but just as hard.. It doesn t really hurt either, but now its starting form a bruise over the lump. I was wondering how I could get these bruises without realizing and if they were connected and something more serious than just bruises?

I have pain in my elbows that started a month ago. It is very sharp made worse by movement or touch. Made worse by making a fist or grabbing and picking things up. When in rest it aches like a deep pain. My skin feels like it s burning. The forearms and triceps and biceps are affected too. I did not do anything repetitive or had any trauma. Just woke up one day with the pain in my right elbow and within two days it moved to my left elbow which is the worse of the two.
