    Default Bruised elbows from lifting?

    Im not experiencing any pain outside of gym but pressing is sometimes hard and i feel some twitching like my forearm is cramping but the cramp feels in my littlefinger.
    Its not painful but rather a uneasy feeling i have in my elbows.
    I do suffer from bicep and tricep tendonitis from time to time but as i start doing some rehab it goes away pretty quickly.
    I have bruises in both of my elbows surrounding the very tip of the elbow.

    Doctor said stop lifting and i said no.

    Thank you for your time and let me know if i need to clarify something.
    Maybe some of you has some experience with this and to be honest i dont know who else to ask. Thanks.

    Sorry, Socalled, but your description is too vague to be helpful.

    It is unclear how bruises at your elbow could have anything to do with lifting - none of the fundamental lifts or useful assistance exercises we discuss put any pressure in that area. How would a bruise there be related to lifting?
