Dealing with injury...

I was injured about 2 weeks ago taking ukemi from my Senseis san-kyo.

At first I thought it would be ok cos I had a similar experience with yon-kyo and my wrist was fine after a couple of days.

Now it has been 2 weeks and my elbow is still painful when I take ukemi from shiho nage , 1-4 kyo... I have no idea what is wrong with my elbow... I already cancelled my yon-kyu test next month.

I can not afford to use a doctor/hospital because I have no health insurance and am basically living on a very strict budget.

What should I do? Continue training and do not take ukemi on that arm/elbow? Rest completely from Aikido and hope the problem goes away?

Any advice would be much appreciated...
