Tennis elbow is also a frequent cause of elbow, arm and thumb pain for computer and mobile phone users.
     
    You may notice pain on the outside of the upper forearm, just below the end of the elbow, when lifting or bending the arm, gripping small objects, such as a pen, or twisting the forearm, such as opening a jar.
