Golfer's elbow — also known as medial epicondylitis — is pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow, where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow (medial epicondyle). The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist.
Signs and symptoms
Golfer's elbow is characterized by pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow. Sometimes the pain extends along the inner side of the forearm. Your elbow may feel stiff, and it may hurt to make a fist. You may have weakness in your hands and wrists.
The pain of golfer's elbow may appear suddenly or gradually. The pain may get worse when you:
[list][*]Swing a golf club or racket[*]Squeeze or pitch a ball[*]Shake hands[*]Turn a doorknob[*]Pick up something with your palm down[*]Flex your wrist toward your forearm[/list]
Or it could be carpal tunnel,
or it's de Quervain's tendonitis
I had golfer's elbow, but what the starter of this thread describes isn't what I experienced. I can recall that the most painful activity then was in brushing my teeth every morning. Everything else on your list is very familiar.
I had numbness in my hand..pinky finger and half of the next finger(ulnar nerve)
I had to see a neurologist..stop lifting weights..change some of my habits(holding a cell phone)..and therapy...and chiropractic care...and it went away..
You should see a neurologist about it...dont wait!!
