Painful shoulder when I wake up with painful muscles around my elbow during the day
Around a week and a half ago I woke up with a sore shoulder together with sore muscles around my elbow in my right arm. I wrote it off as having "slept badly" as my shoulder pain faded as the day progressed but the muscles around my elbow remained sore. I am unable to pick up heavy items or twist my arm without it hurting quite a bit more however if I keep it still in certain positions then there is almost no pain.

Now every morning I wake up with pain in my shoulder again with the pain around my elbow just always being there - is this some form of tennis elbow (I've read that working on a computer for extended periods can also cause tennis elbow...but I'm not sure if explains my sore shoulder every morning). There is also no visible bruising on my arm/shoulder.

Should I take some form of anti-inflammatory pain medication and just tone down the use of my arm or should I rather see a doctor about this?

My guess you have Elbow Bursitis! I suggest seeing an Orthopedist.
