There are usually a day or so and usually less than a week of rest and elevation and use of ice and pain meds and then depending on the splinting and comfort, the child can return to scool with the proper accommodations.

The most common pinched nerve a t the elbow is the ulnar nerve in cubital tunnel syndrome. While numbness in the little and ring finger, weakness in the intrinsic muscles of the hand and weakness in several flexor tendons occurs, pain is not commonly a primary symptom.

Anither type of nerve compression at the elbow is so called radial tunnel syndrome. At times radial tunnel is thought to present with similar findings of tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis.
If you had some lateral or medial epiicndylitis pain could be a component.
