How are you?. I went to sleep last night feeling pretty

Customer Question
Hello, how are you...

Hello, how are you? My name is ***** *****. I went to sleep last night feeling pretty good. This morning, I woke up to some pain in close proximity to my elbow. And throughout the day, there has been a lump that has formed next to my elbow. When I press on it, I feel alot of pain. on the inside of the same arm (crease) there is a very small area that looks like a rash.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Yes, swelling has occurred within the past 12 hours

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing at all.
