Tennis Elbow | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of tennis elbow?

Tennis elbow begins as an ache on the outside of the elbow. It gradually gets worse over a period of several weeks or months until it is a severe burning pain. You may notice pain moving from the outside of your elbow to your forearm and back of your hand when you make a grasping or twisting motion.

As the condition worsens, your grip may weaken, or you may feel pain even when lifting light objects, such as a small book or coffee cup. Pressing on the outside of your elbow may increase pain.
