Thanks for posting your query.

According to your description , elbow pain and swelling seems to be inflammatory in nature. Swelling over elbow might press the ulnar nerve and causes tingling sensation down your arm to the pinky finger.

I advice you to give you rest to your elbow, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of elbow and rule out any infective cause.

Wishing you good health
