Brief Answer:
Not a serious issue. Please read below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Issues you describe are mostly caused by compression of the ulnar nerve as it passes through the elbow.

Don't worry, is not a serious condition, there are no damages, try to avoid pressure on the elbow as you work on the computer.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
