I have pain in my outer elbow/forearm area that makes it impossible to rotate my wrist inward (as in turning your wrist to look at the fce of your watch).  Anyone else experience this?  It usually lasts for several days but sometimes it's only for hours.

I had severe elbow and forearm pain this spring. I could not even reach for a coffee cup. I went back to my orthopaedic surgeon (had shoulder surgery last September), and he gave me a corizone shot in my elbow. It worked like a charm. My pain started as you described (coming and going), but eventually it stayed and never went away. Hope you can get some relief too.

Is it possible you've hit it on something and maybe bruised the bone? If you're having trouble actually moving your arm with this pain, that warrants a trip to the doctor and an X-ray to see if there are any chips in the bone.

I have been dealing with elbow/arm pain for several months now as well, and I can only guess it's from all the arm work at AquaFit. My right arm is the worst (even though I broke my left elbow many years ago) - I can't even run my finger lightly down the back of the arm without pain...it's like I'm hypersensitive to any touch.

You could be dealing with any number of issues, (strain, sprain, bursitis, etc.), so ask your doctor about it, just to be safe.
