    Snap , I have exactly the same , you just do not know what to do or where to put your elbow , its deep inside , as if its in your bone , it goes away for a couple of hours and then its back again , havnt done anything different  but its back , my pain is also in my armpit as well , it just moves around, my Consultant says its my fibromyalgia , but get your GP to check you out , i rub gel into my elbow to get a little relief , hope this helps you a little  x

      They call it connective tissue , and mine is in a L shape from my sternum ,under my breast into my armpit, up to my collar bone into my neck muscles and down my arm via my elbow usually stops there, but now and then my fingers take their turn !!!!!!!!!  x

      Hi meljenk;   as someone else asked, have you hurt your arm/had a fall etc in the past 6 months or so??? There is such a thing as Tendonites (as your doctor has said "its inflammation"....this is a very tender condition....if you get to the stage of "not being able to put arm behind your back", then it is Definately Tendonites......try rubbing it with a "warming gel"..hot packs....and if no improvement, maybe your dr will order an ultra-scan???  Also if inflammation, did your doctor advise re the taking of an Anti-inflammatory (eg Ibobrufen)???? 

      ​If on other hand, this/these pains are ALL over your body,or similar discomfort, and been bothering you for a period of time, (more than 6 months),  then perhaps it is worth thinking of some other condition, and having an opinion from either an Orthopadic Surgeon/Rhuematologist could help you????.....Bron

    They say that there is no blood test for Fibro , there is it is still new to the market and they haven't had enough studies yet. Mant doctors do the trigger testing which some take to heart , and well I don't believe you can be labeled something that no one nknows the cause or r the cure,.
