Hello, I know that there have been plenty of topics about elbow pain. I've been pitching for about four years but have never had this much pain. I throw a fastball in the low to mid 70s, curveball, slurve, and a change-up. I'm 18 years old and I have elbow pain on the inside of the elbow and on the spot where it flexes. I can never see where the elbow swells so when people ask if there has been swelling, I can never tell them. It started up a few weeks ago. I started pitching one day as a starter, 80 pitches. Then the next day I went out and pitched a little on my own, trying a higher leg lift in my mechanics to see if I gained more velocity and that was when it really started hurting. I stretched properly and everything, but it was all for not. Now in the last few days, it stopped hurting even with those same mechanics so I don't think it's the mechanics. I stopped pitching for a whole week with some tossing and it was fine for a while but it started hurting again with some short toss with my friend. I'm checking with my trainer tomorrow but I wanted to know if anyone else might know what's going on. Thanks for all of your time and I'd really appreciate a reply.
