Sharp sudden pain on the forearm, feeling numbness. Need help

I was just sitting there and all of a sudden, my right upper forearm started hurting real bad. It was a sharp pain. I figured it would just go away, but it did not. It has been hurting for about 4 hours now. I cannot sleepbecause of it. Now it is starting to feel a little numb, but it still hurts really bad. I also feel the pain in my elbow and my pinkie and ring finger . I can hardly even type it hurts so bad. Please help?

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Acute pain may be due to rheumatoid arthritis .
May be local pain due to trauma,
neuritis ,
Numbness is there so also chances are of cervical spondylosis.
Osteomyelitis ( if pain is in a localized area).
Physical examination is very important hence consult a primary care physician and get his opinion.
Good luck.
