Burning sensation in right elbow

My right elbow feels like it is burning when I move it, I was cleaning a window 7 weeks ago but over the past 5 weeks the pain is really bad and it aches a lot especially at night. In the mornings for about 2 hours it is burning and painful.

Thank you for your reply, the situation has got worse, the burning sensation is virtually there all the time now and when i move the arm the pain travels half way down the arm, the elbow is tender to touch. It feels like something is rubbing.

Hi,

What is your age? Since when have you noticed these symptoms? What work do you
do? Does it involve a lot of movement or rotation at the elbow joint or constant
pressure on the elbow for long hours? Is the swelling on the inside or outside
of your elbow joint? Do you remember  any history of trauma or injury to the
site?

This could be - tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, olecranon bursitis or synovial
cyst of the elbow joint.

'Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful
and tender. It's a condition that is commonly associated with playing tennis,
though the injury can happen to almost anybody.
The condition is more formally known as lateral epicondylitis ("inflammation to
the outside elbow bone"), lateral epicondylosis, or simply lateral elbow pain.'

and

'Golfer's elbow — also known as medial epicondylitis — is similar to tennis
elbow. But it occurs on the inside — rather than the outside — of your elbow.'

'Olecranon bursitis is inflammation of the bursa overlying the olecranon process
at the proximal aspect of the ulna. The bursa is located between the ulna and
the skin at the posterior tip of the elbow.'

It would be advisable to consult your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis and to
plan the further management.

Let us know if you need any other information and post us about how you are
doing.

Regards.

I will be specific. The skin on my right elbow feels just like it was burned like from a flame or perhaps rug burn if not that it feels just like a wound as if it was cut. When I put my left hand on the left shoulder and right hand on the right shoulder, it looks as if there is a more defined groove or lump if you will. The skin is tender and somewhat red. I just happened this morning and applying an ice pack just seems to enhance the burning sensation. As per previous work, I have only worked at a call center but even then I used my left hand to answer the phone and my right to use the key board and the right elbow is the one with the matter hat hand. Now, when I mentioned the lump, the burn was just below the lump on the elbow and it is sensitive when tapping it.
-Just started this morning shortly after I woke up
-feels like a burn or cut
-skin is more red than usual
-is it a bite?
