    I am presuming this is tennis elbow, any ideas as too how to cure the pain quickly (within a week or two) I don't want to stop playing, and I have tournaments coming up within the next month, that I want to be injury free from.
    Also does the arm supports work ?
    You need to take this seriously. The longer you wait before getting proper treatment, the more damage you're doing to the tendon in your arm, and the longer it will take to recover. If you don't rest now, you might find later that you have to stop playing for several months.

    My suggestion is to find a good physiotherapist who knows something about sports medicine. Go to your doctor and ask them to recommend someone. And don't pick up a racquet again until you've seen a medical professional and asked their advice.

    Good luck with this, let us know how it goes.

    Its better you keep from playing until properly diagnosed. maybe you wont feel any pain, or it wont be as bad, but that is only a temporary solution. Chances are playing tomorrow will aggravate it, or even escalate the problems you have. Losing 2 weeks may seem bad, but, seeing as you want to play in that tournament, you should think about total rest.

    Now I use a special dough to train my arm n elbow muscle to rehabilitate my tennis elbow. Of course the right physiotherapist is also important. Feel free to message me as I m willing to share my experience about my tennis elbow injury.

    As with any injury you need to treat it right. Certainly rest is useful to allow some repair. After this here's what i would do...

    1) increase grip size until you find what works for you
    2) reduce your string tension. From reading on this forum and others, players overall are stringing their racquets far too tight for their standard. Put your ego aside. If you're an intermediate club/league standard, having a racquet strung at 25-30lbs is causing damage to your body because you are not playing at the level where you "middle" the hit consistently enough. Lower your tensions gradually by no more than 2lbs until you find a happy medium.
    3) if you play with plastic shuttles, try feathers. Plastic shuttles combined with high tensions have caused more injuries in players than anything else.

    Hope this helps
    This is, I believe, the most significant of the replies posted above. I think racquet weight, grip size, and string tension are the important factors, out of which string tension is the most important one.

    Tennis elbow is just the inflammation of origin of muscles, tendons and bone at the outer elbow caused due to abnormal pressure. This is reduced if you alter the pressures (mostly stringing, grip size). Its more of a trial and error and you need to judge what suits you.

    You can buy Skinetex Kinesiology Tape online here: http://www.yumo.ca/shop/product-category/skinetex/
    or

    I have been suffering from tennis elbow for a long time from all the training and competing. This really helped me a lot especially when my tennis elbow started flaring up a few hours before competition. One strip of tape stretched down the forearm and I'm pain free to play. Here's a picture of me with that exact application for tennis elbow: Name:  189986_150376818356656_8276465_n-e1344459184363.jpg

    .... and for shin splints and for vastus medialis pain.
    International sports is obviously a tough business.
