What is medial epicondylitis? It develops where tendons in the forearm muscle connect to the bony part on the inside of the elbow. Tendons attach muscles to bones. Due to injury or irritation, they can become swollen and painful. It can occur from any activity involving use of the arms or wrists, including tennis and baseball. Medial epicondylitis can occur suddenly or develop slowly over a period of time.
