Elbow pain

I am having persistent pain in my elbow when I lift weights in my gym. The pain is very slight but occurs only when I bend my elbow ,say to touch my back head. Any thing to be worried about ? Pain is since few months.

It appears that you may have sprained a muscle near your elbow. I suggest that you avoid any strenuous activity for the next three weeks, apply a local gel/spray and take prescriptions medicines from your local doctor only if the pain is very severe. You should also avoid physiotherapy except to take Short wave diathermy or Interferential therapy. Do you do a proper warmup/ cooldown and stretching before/after your exercise ?
