If pain occurs after trauma or fall, it is important to make sure that it is not due to other conditions such as a fracture. Bruising and swelling are also symptoms that suggest conditions other than golfer’s elbow. Pain that does not improve despite rest or wearing an appropriate elbow brace may suggest a tendon tear. Pain that wakes you from sleep on a regular basis is unusual in golfer’s elbow, and may require further investigation while pain that is burning in nature suggests a nerve problem rather than a golfer's elbow.
