Elbow injury

Fell 2 weeks ago and banged elbow on concrete. Was in a lot of pain so had xray 2 days later, no fracture.
3 weeks on and it is still very very sore, can't lean on it, it aches, swells by the end of the day. Taking ibuprofen and paracetamol every day with little effect. It's not agony but hurts a lot.
Is it worth seeing Gp, would have expected it to feel a bit better by now?
Or am I being a whimp

Go back to your GP.

It might be an occult fracture, not seen on an initial xray (not that uncommon!) but, 3 weeks later, if it is a fracture, it will be seen on an xray- or the beginning of healing! That's a very sensible length of time to wait'n'see.

Thanks Draylon it appears that it's driving that aggravates it. Initially I couldn't grip, open a door handle but can now.

Will book a GP appointment.
