Hi Megza, a couple months ago i got tennis elbow but though i tore a muscle whlle messing with my dogs until a co worker said i had tennis elbow so i research tennis elbow and saw exactly the symptoms i was expierencing. no surgery, really no doctor cost unless you go to a orthopedic doctor. i bought one of those bands that has velcro that raps around the upper part of the forarm near the elbow and it helps greatly. it has got better over time as i'm being more careful what i do while it heals. it does act like a muscle tear. i'm going to attach a couple links good luck Phill http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/elbow/a/tenniselbow.htm
