Please explain how you injured yourself, still I would suggest Might be symptom of bursitis. You need to take rest, from gym. min 15-20 days. Can use hot and cold therapy (contrast bath), ultrasound therapy, post rest days use wts at gym,but use low wt and less reps, slow progress to wt training. Strengthen forearm muscle is v imp.
