Hmmm, I'm not sure I'm right about this one, but one thing I do know is that performing wrist/forearm exercises, as well as shoulder exercises can help improve elbow strength. Do some things different with your mechanics, and if you have a chance to, videotape yourself. By videotaping yourself, you may be able to fix any mechanical flaws you may have; thereby allowing you to fix your mechanics, and hopefully alleviate your elbow pain. Ice/heat your elbow for about 20 minutes, about 40 minutes combined. Your probably just putting too much stress on the elbow causing some sort of inflammation.
