    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I've got a problem with my left elbow.
    When I move it in any way with any resistance, it hurts. Push, pull or torque, if theres any resistance at all, I get a very unpleasant twinge in the soft tissues of the elbow.
    I've no idea how I did it (I'm blaming my girlfriend and her voodoo magic) and I'm at a loss as to how to cue it.
    I can't rest it because I use it to change gears in my car and I have a very stiff gearbox.

    Thoughts?

    Trying using the other hand to beat off with for a while...J/K!!! Sorry, couldn't resist that :o)

    Possibly you over extended your elbow doing a technique. As far as I know, all you can do is rest it. I'd suggest a trip to a dr and get some real medical advice.

    Probably hyperextension or repetitive/overuse injury. Rest, give it a couple days and if you still have discomfort go to the doctor.

    Sam,

    I've had this in my right elbow too. Rest! Ice! Lots of anti-inflamatories. No weight lifting or hard contact w/ that arm for awhile...

    It sounds like tennis elbow, which means life is going to suck for me. Hell... I primarily masturbate with that arm.
    Cheers for the advice. I'll see my doctor later on in the week.

    It went away after a few days of ice and rest

    Sam, it doesn't have to be tennis elbow. Tendonitis has the same symptoms, and that's what I had. Just follow the R.I.C.E routine http://www.physsportsmed.com/issues/1996/10_96/rizzo.htm and take anti-inflammatories like naproxin sodium. You should be ok. Just don't restart serious activity before you're ready. Give yourself time to heal.

    Good luck! <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>
