My lower bicep is sore, fingers are numb and the muscle appears to be gone. What could this be?

I don’t want to hear "go to the doctor." I know I need to, but I wanted to get some opinions on this. Here is some more detail, it’s kind of freaking me out.

Saturday, at a child’s birthday party I was picking up kids by their hands and swinging them in circles like a helicopter ride. I felt fine. Shortly afterwards, I started playing Wii with the kids. About 5 minutes into it, I noticed my lower bicep muscle and the joint opposite the elbow was sore and I was having trouble moving it.

Since then my right thumb and pointer finger have gone numb. I noticed today that I cannot flex my bicep muscle. It’s almost like it is gone. When I feel the left bicep, I can tell it is muscle without flexing. When I feel my right bicep, it feels like jello and is very sore.

What could this be?
BTW…I can barely touch my nose or face with the injured arm. It has lost flexibility and strength. I can’t pick up my infant twins without grimmacing in pain.
