I don't know if it is tennis elbow. My doctor told me that I have tendinitis. The pain starts at the elbow and goes up the bicep. He told me to wear a "sports bandage" when I play. Was he referring to a standard cotton bandage or kinesio tape? I have to rest for 4-6 weeks which is a real bummer. Injuries and weather have stopped me from playing much in the past year.
