Rub a hand under your elbow to indicate that someone is jealous. He or she is suffering from "dor de cotovelo." It literally means elbow pain. One explanation is that when you feel down or blue you sit for a long time with your elbows on the table and they get sore...There are so many songs written about "dor de cotovelo" that we created a page for that!
