I just experienced a pain in my elbow a week ago. I played 3-4 more times after that, and it started to appear often and faster, especially during smashes. The pain is like getting your elbow slightly pulled, and its in the whole general area of my elbow. The pain is inside, and I'm starting to worry about it. The pain is still bearable. My parents advise that I take a two week break, but I worry that this pain won't go away. My theory: when I smash I extend my arm straight and don't follow through on my left hip; this may cause stress on my elbow (does anyone have a guide or vid for correct technique?). Please help me, I just need to know if this is seems serious or not. P.S. I have been lifting weights this week (first time in a long while).
