Hello,

You could have a condition known as olecranon bursitiis. The Olecranon is the pointy end of the elbow that you can feel under the skin. The Olecranon bursa is a fluid-filled sac found about this joint - It provides lubrication to help reduce friction during movement.

This bursa can sometimes become inflamed - symptoms consist of pain, especially while lifting or moving the joint and swelling .

Other causes of pain in the elbow joints could be arthritis of the joint or injury to one f the muscles.

Please consult an orthopedic surgeon for a thorough checkup.

I hope this helped.
