If it is that bad, you should talk to your doctor about cortisone shots. You have to get them every few months though. But I have heard it works.

A doctor once told a friend of mine that when you sit at a table or in a way that your arm is propped up, you should put a folded towel under your elbow to cushion it. My friend did this and it really did help. It took a little bit to get into the habit, but my friend said it was well worth it.

My son-in-law has been on disability leave from work for 6 weeks due to tendinitis, which is basically tennis elbow. He has been going to physical therapy twice a week plus the doctor put him on Mobic. He also got a shot in the elbow twice. Don't know of what. He was on no lifting of anything over 5 lbs. He went back to work yesterday. If you have not you should talk to your doctor.
