Suppose it wouldn't hurt to look up a doctor in your local area for more insight?
Same, although for me it's with tactile signing. I use the corner of a table or a small table with a pillow on it if I'm going to be doing it for awhile. It makes a huge difference. You might consider using a pillow, it really makes it easier on your elbow.

I discovered yet another thing that helps tremendously with the tendons in my elbow, and anywhere in my body really. I have gotten more blood flow to my hands and feet than ever before. It's stretching with resistance. So basically what you do is just stretch as usual, but instead of just letting the muscles and tendons stretch, push back against whatever you're stretching to create resistance. I had it done to me a few days ago by the guy who discovered the concept and I've never felt better in my elbows and knees. The stretching also goes way deeper than just physical changes. You can look up his site by searching meridian stretching or the Genius of Flexibility. I had forgotten about this technique for awhile cause I hadn't seen him in 3 years but I just saw him again and remembered it's an excellent way to relieve tension, aches, and pains, numbness, tingling, etc. Good luck.
