    Your favorite sleeping position–like placing your arm under your pillow–could be numbing your arm by putting pressure on a nerve (ulnar nerve). Everyone has had a minor elbow injury. You may have bumped your "funny bone" back of your elbow, causing shooting numbness and pain. The funny-bone sensation can be intense, but it is not serious and will go away on its own.
    I hope this helps you. And good luck.

    I’m 12 and have the same problem. I was reading about it and I found out I have throwers elbow. Do you play baseball? If so, ice your arm for fifteen minutes about six times daily, and rest it. After two days of rest and icing, apply heat to the pain. Hopefully this helps you, if any questions, contact me at turner.nelson25@yahoo.com
