Basically, the muscles of your forearm are attached to either the inside edge or outside edge of your elbow...and when you stress these muscles...it pulls on the inside or outside edge...and causes inflammation of the area at your elbow.
There are some people who do get help by using elbow braces as Dr S. recommended...but you need to get it better first....
The big thing to help get better is to stretch the forearm muscles and strengthen your wrist flexors and pronators (muscles used when the palm faces down and you cock your wrist backwards). You need to start with doing isometric exercises, then eccentric and concentric resistance exercises using those muscles.
Here's the best physical therapy website that I've seen for patients to be able to understand the exercises the best....it's basically like doing negatives with your wrist and elbow....
You have to scroll down to the treatment part....and the exercises are for both medial and lateral epicondylitis....but do them, and you'll get better.
A warning....the inside of your elbow may get worse for a while, but that's ok. It will improve!
PM me if you have any questions....and good luck!

I suffered from this same ailment for a couple months. It got to the point that I couldn't lift anymore. After several vists to my physician and an ortho. specialist, the recommendation was a cortisone injection. After 2 weeks of resting the arm, I'm back lifting at a 100% and pain free.
