Just started having lateral elbow pain 2 days ago. Trying to determine best course of action. The pain is not debilitating at all - but I do feel it constantly during play now. Also at rest at little, but it increases and even becomes sharp when I extend my elbow fully. I can feel the pain increase in elbow when I grip tightly, but it doesn't prevent me from griping as tight as I want. My mindset would be to just play through this, but I made the mistake of coming here and getting horrified by stories of weeks and months off to recover from tennis elbow. I know not all elbow pain is TE, and I'm wondering if I maybe just hyper-extended a little bit or something. Now I'm just paranoid that it might really be the beginning of TE. I've been playing about 3 times a week for the past couple of years. Last week on vacation I played 2 times a day for 4 days straight. I recall only a little elbow soreness at the end of the week. This week I've played 3 days straight, the pain started on day 1 and has been pretty much unchanged since. I've been using ice and nsaids.

Seems like too little pain to do that right now. Sorry for the long post - and thanks in advance!
