Hello!

You are advised to go for an X-ray and check the healing, since you have symptoms even after 5-6 months of your injury. Based on your present condition you would need an examination near an Orthopedician after diagnosing. There may be inflammation of the bursa of olecranon called as olecranon bursitis due to the injury, compression of the nerves or injury to tendons attached to epicondyles.  Epicondyles are the boney attachment sites for many of the forearm muscles.

Take care!
