Thank you for posting your query.

It is difficult to pinpoint the problem without examining you. However, it is possible to get pain in elbows and arms, due to slipped disc in the cervical region. If you can upload your MRI report, it would be useful.

It is unlikely to be gathiya (arthritis), based on your symptoms.
