ELBOW PAIN WHEN I EXTEND ONLY. NO SWELLING OR BRUISING.

Hello,


I'm having a pain in my elbow when I straighten it to 180 degrees. Almost like it doesn't want me to. When it is at about a 160 degree angle, I don't feel NO PAIN NOTHING. There's no swelling nor bruising. I highly doubt this is tennis elbow or tendinitis. the symptoms just don't match. I am a bgirl (breakdancer) and lately I've been busy with work so I haven't danced for about a month and a half. I started feeling this pain after I stopped dancing for a while so I know this isn't an injury from doing something wrong.
It literally just showed up. One morning it felt stiff and I couldn't extend it. I can extend it and stretch it there for a few minutes and it can go away. But it doesn't take much longer to get stiff again for example, 10-15 minutes later I can feel it if I try to extend. Its pretty weird. Unconsciously, I now walk with a slightly bent arm. There is only pain when I fully extend it 180 degrees. It goes away once i retract to a 170 degree angle.


Please help.
