Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but for the past few days, whenever I stop playing guitar and stretch out my left arm, the elbow joint always aches, but it doesn't ache while my arm's bent. Is this normal and should I just keep playing until it goes away or should I not play for a few days or something?

Also, my mum and sister said it might be a nervous thing or something cause like the other day apparantly I was doing air guitar in my sleep lol but um yeah what's up with my arm?
Curses...i have nothing of interest to write in this here place.

I'd say get a doctor to look at it. Have you been lifting weights with your left arm, or do you just play guitar?

Also, the air guitar in your sleep means that you want to rock and roll all night, instead of sleeping. Give that a try.

It's probably nothing. Take a break for a day and see if it stops aching. But if it does continue or get any worse go see a doctor. It could possibly tennis elbow (omg that sucks I've had it...tennis elbow) but I doubt it.

GTFO, cancer jokes belong in your own mind or possibly in the pit, the same place as unhelpful replies.

Elbow cancer?

If you're playing right-handed, it might have to do with your position or something. Does it hurt while playing? If you're playing lefty, pick more with your wrist and try to avoid tension in your arm/elbow.

Take a few days off, and see if it still hurts. If it does go see a doctor, if it doesn't,
