Pain at the elbow and the upper forearm is a common sign of overuse of the forearm muscles that bend and straighten the wrist. This is common in sports such as golf and tennis but can also arise from activities such as computer use if the wrists are not held horizontal with the keyboard. Other general causes of elbow pain are due to trapped nerves that can arise from injuries or from arthritis.
