I woke with a stinging/ burning pain in my left inner forearm to wrist/ thumb. It only hurts if i extend my arm out to the side, or stretch.

In brief: Nerves

May be carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel.
These are conditions where major nerves in your arm become "compressed" during sleep. A nerve conduction study can be helpful. You can buy a carpal tunnel splint to wear at night at the pharmacy, see if it helps, but do not delay in seeking care.
