Q. I have been working out regularly and developed pain about two months ago in the back part of my left elbow. It did not swell and I did not feel a pop. However, whenever I work out the pain gets worse and I have had to cut my weight in half. I also feel some cracking in my left elbow that used to not be there. I do not want to give up my training as I like to work out in the gym at least three to four days a week. Any suggestions?
