Elbow pain, maybe tennis elbow/tendonitis?
I'm 32, 5'8", 175....and other than this issue, in the best shape and health of my life. It's not soreness, I know soreness very well. The pain has been with me for three weeks, and started at a time when I introduced more exercise, more volume (I've since stopped this extra work---still following my normal routine, crossfit football, as prescribed).
I can bench hundreds of pounds, no problem and no pain. BUT, when I go to do something as simple as turn a door knob, or give a firm handshake, or swish around food in a cast iron sautee pan, it's hurts like hell. Deadlifts hurt, because of the gripping, but bench doesn't hurt for some reason.
A compression sleeve I've been wearing seems to help...a little.
Location of the pain: outside elbow/upper forearm area.
Any help/ideas? I just want it to go away
