I’ve recently started throwing a lot of forehands and am having a lot of pain right above the elbow. Does anyone know what this issue could be from? Thank you

Inside of the elbow, pinky finger side? If so that's golfer's elbow as a common term.

Usually seems to happen from getting the elbow way in front of the shoulder plane. Often people will turn back and swing the arm itself way back of the shoulder plane, then move the arm/elbow forward using the shoulder socket. If you video your form from the side you'll likely have an instant where the elbow is way ahead of your torso and your hand that puts the strain on your elbow.

I got this a while ago when I started throwing more FH's for power. I took some time off throwing them, like 1-2 weeks since it was minor, and learned to leverage the arm better rather than trying to snap the disc/hand at the target, which is how it felt for me when I had the elbow way too in front. I haven't had that issue since and I throw 50-75' farther FH than I used to when I got that pain.
