I got a tennis elbow when I tried to lift a heavy object and felt the tear immediately. I should have been more careful.

I am having severe pain in the elbow and when I burp I have severe knife stabbing pains in my elbow. I cannot straighten my arm. I am left handed and it is my left elbow. I take care of my grandsons daily, and one is a year old.
