Should go away: Give it a chance, it should get better. Try taking an anti-inflammatory medicine.

Ulnar nerve: The ulnar nerve runs superficially across the elbow in the cubical tunnel. It can easily become traumatized with a blow to the elbow. It is important to sleep with your arms down by your side and not bent to allow for a quicker recovery. Likewise, use a headset or blue tooth instead of holding the phone to the ear. Pain and tingling should resolve.
