Help with an injured elbow

My right elbow has been bothering me for some time. More specifically the tendon on the inside of my elbow. I can no longer straighten my arm completely and attempts to do so (nikyou pin, etc) are painful. In all honesty, the chronic pain and the absolute inability of my Japanese doctors to help in any way (or even bother to try) are frustrating. From everything I can gather my condition is similar to that of medial epicondylitis, at least in terms of the location of the pain, though
I don't have shooting pain down my forearm. I took a month off over New Years, but I'm loathe to take off more time than that. Does anyone have any recommendations? Similar experiences?
