I have slight pain, but mainly soreness and weakness at the bottom of my elbow, the "ball" under the elbow is very tender. I feel weakness in grip and less dexterity in fingers. Ice and rest should do the trick.
I haven't been playing any more often than normal, but I have been really feeling the weight of the disc pulling on my forefinger, getting snap off that finger, late acceleration, etc. I've been averaging 375-400 with the disc slipping out of my hand and have just started to get the disc to snap off. I tend to feel more strain immediately after release. Anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong?

And there really wasn't a 'cure' for it as much as letting it rest and recover on it's own for me. I took 2 months off after the season without throwing and it recovered 100%.
