There are several recent threads on GE & TE.

"guessing its just a strain" ?

"A strain is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon." From -

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/spr...trains/DS00343

If you just tore a tendon it is important to stop playing or otherwise stressing it immediately while the tissue is starting to heal. You run a risk of developing a chronic GE or TE injury if the tendon tissue heals in a defective manner on the microscopic level. See recent threads.

Best to see a well qualified Dr.

Both the best man and woman players in our tennis club are each currently dealing with recent TE injuries.
