Our expert says:
Kay, I think the first thing that comes to mind it tennis elbow. It might also be due to gout or another form of arthritis. Another less likely option is that it might be something in your neck or shoulder pressing on the nerve that supplies the arm. The best would probably be to take an anti-inflammatory drug like Arthrotec®, Brufen®, Celebrex®, etc, for a couple of days and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up, you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
