welcome to HCm.Most likely you have bursitis of the elbow -olecranon bursitis.Do cold compresses of the area.Limit movement in the region and take pain killers if you suffer too much pain.By this regime,it should settle in a week's time -if pain increases or swelling is immense or you notice tingling or redness please see a orthopedician without delay.
