When you have tennis elbow can that cause the actual elbow joint to hurt too.
Dear customer,
I am Dr.Charles and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Yes,tennis elbow causes pain in elbow joint.The most common symptoms of tennis elbow are:

-Pain over the outside of the elbow
-Pain when lifting objects
-Pain radiating down the forearm

Pain due to tennis elbow is usually on the outer part of elbow but it is not limited there & may cause pain in actual elbow joint.Pain is worse when shaking hands or squeezing objects.

Following treatment is recommended:physical therapy,forearm bracing to rest the tendons, topical anti-inflammatory gels, topical cortisone gels, and cortisone injections.So I advice you to consult your doctor and hence the treatment will be done accordingly.

Hope this helped & I had provided you an excellent service.

Your satisfaction is my prime goal and I'm happy to answer any follow-up questions you may have.Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.

Kind Regards-
