Many reasons: There are many reasons for these symptoms including pressure on nerves at the elbow or wrist. Are you possibly sleeping in a way that causes such pressure at these joints? If they symptoms persist or worsen, see your primary care provider, who may refer you to a neurologist if indicated. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000789.htm
