    Hi all,

    Recently for the past 2 months, when ever i played tennis, i get a pain near the elbow, on outside of the arm, on the upper arm section. The pain comes especially on service. This pain usually comes on after 30mins-60mins of play. The soreness lasts about 48 hours.

    I have googled around, and found that tennis elbow occurs nearer to the lower arm. As such i do not have symptoms like :

    "pain usually gets worse when you bend your wrist backward, turn your palm upward, or hold something with a stiff wrist or straightened elbow. Grasping items also makes the pain worst"

    Is this tennis elbow or something else like golfer's elbow?

    Thanks and hope to find an answer and a cure.

    I've had te and I have friends with tennis elbow and it's never in the same spot for each person. Mine was a result of poor mechanics and poor racquet selection. Developed better mechanics and ditched the racquet as part of therapy. All is better now.
