Elbow on fire -- is it you damn mouse?

I looked up this question
, but my pain is my elbow and not my hand, arm or wrist. Googling seems to tell me it's "tennis elbow".

Could this be from using a mouse? I had a repetitive strain injury in my wrist, but I got an ergonomic/height adjustable keyboard tray and I use a joystick mouse
. Plus I use a wrist brace when it's flaring up as well.
But now it’s the outside of my elbow! I barely move my elbow. Mind you, I do rest it on the arm of my chair when I mouse -- could that be a cause? This pain has been going on for about a week and I will go to my doctor to see what he says. But I am asking: could this be from mousing? If so, what should I do? I have already switched mice and it’s not helping. Should I put the arms of my chair down so my elbows are not resting on anything?
