Twingle in elbow when bending or leaning on it, frequently carry kids. Possibilities of injured nerve?

When I bend my elbow or lean on my elbows, in my left arm I feel a twinge from my elbow to my hand . It is especially strong if I touch in one particular place on my forearm . Started yesterday but is just annoying. I do have 3 children and am picking them up and carrying them around frequently. Could I have somehow injured a nerve or something?

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.

It can be damaged nerve but this is probably artritis or bursitis caused by hyperfunction of elbow and is usually found inn sportsman and people who use this joint too much. You should rest,keep you arm elevated, apply some ice for 10 minutes and take antiinflammator nonsteroid painkillers. If this persist you should do elbow xray exam to rule out bone damage.

Wish you good health. Regards
