Hi, if the impact is hard enough i would suggest you to see a orthopaedic doctor and get a x-ray of the elbow to rule out fractures around elbow. There is a nerve which runs below the inner side of the elbow, impact on that part might produce tingling in the hand and fingers. If its not a bony injury should subside in few days with pain killers. Take care
