In brief: Ulnar nerve

Sounds like an ulnar nerve problem at the elbow, and best to avoid leaning on that elbow.
Less commonly the ulnar nerve can be pinched at the wrist associated with computer activities. Should clear within 3-4 weeks if you avoid the provocative activities, but see you doctor if it persists longer.
