May be several thing: There are many possible causes although it sounds like possible tendinitis or bursitis of the elbow. It depends on whether the pain is present at rest or with activity and if there are particular activities that cause the pain. With no history of trauma best to see an orthopedist or rheumatologist.

Forearm pain: From what you have said 1- left arm 2- squeezing pain 3- leukemia concern. If I want to put a common denominator it would be anemia. But since you have checked your blood counts, leukemia concerns are not warranted. Pain in the left forearm could be referred pain from the heart. At your age could be myositis (muscle inflammation). Neurofibroma in the area or torn muscle. You need a check up asap.

Could be nerve root: Your description sounds like a cervical nerve root problem. Injury to the peripheral nerves exiting from your neck can cause pain, paresthesias (pins and needles), numbness, and/or weakness. You would benefit from a consultation with your doctor to delve into this issue further. Good luck to a quick recovery.
