As I play more and more tennis (4-5 days a week, 2-3 hours/each time) I am worrying that I might get tennis elbow some day. And I try my best to avoid it. I have a question, so is there any starting symptom for tennis elbow? I am thinking that if I know the T.E. is coming I would just quit playing for a few weeks for it to heal before it does permanent damage. Right now, I am feeling a bit uncomfortable in my elbow and I am not sure it'll get any worse.
