It may be a sign of carpel tunnel...I would see your Dr about it...sometimes nerves in the arms get pinched from over use like squeezing a piping bag for a long period of time.

Carpel tunnel can strike at any age especially if you were working as a cashier etc over the last few years..Pinched nerves can also happen to small children too...

Have your Dr check it out!!

I had that before and there is a name for it, but I forgot. There is a tendon in your elbow and the muscle that goes from your elbow to your hand into your pinky is the problem. My doctor told me that there may be a bone chipped in my elbow causing the muscle in my elbow to be pinched.

He told me not to lean on my elbow and if this didn't fix it I would have to have surgery. I stopped going into the websites for a week and when I did surf the net I stopped leaning on that elbow and it is fine now.

So if you lean on either of those elbows a lot that could be the problem. I think it has something to do with Tendinitis

Definition of Tendinitis
Tendinitis (also known as tendonitis) is an inflammation of a tendon (a band of fibrous tissue connecting muscle to bone) that causes pain, tenderness and occasionally, restricted movement of the muscle attached to the affected tendon.

Sounds like what is called "Tennis Elbow"

It's caused by repetitive movement that creates small tears in the tendon. Rest and anti-inflammatories are usually the treatment.

Here's some info:
