In brief: Carpal tunnel or uln
You are probably having some compression of the nerves in your wrist (carpal tunnel) or in your elbow area (ulnar neuropathy) from the excessive use of your fingers/hands and bending of your elbows.
If it causes bothersome symptoms, stop it. Consult your doc before it gets too severe. Good luck.
