Elbow joint very sore, any ways to speed up the healing process?

Didn't touch a DSLR for months, then this past weekend, went to photograph a festival going stage to stage carrying heavy lenses for ~8 hours a day. Just tired the next day. But the following day, can barely move my right arm.

My elbow joint is very sore. Painful to lift up my arm, clicking the mouse / pushing buttons / turning on light switches hurt as well. Can't bend my arm very well and have to keep it very straight. Most pain is when I mimic photographing / hold a DSLR again so it's definitely that... yet there was no pain at all yesterday, just tired.
Other than resting, are there any ways I can speed up / improve the healing process? The hotspots are definitely at the elbow joint – irritation just by touching the area. Or does this sound like something worse developing?
