In brief: Ulnar nerves

Commonest cause of this is ulnar nerve compression at the elbow.
Although most of the symptoms will be experienced in forearm and hands, some symptoms may be noted in upper arms. If the funny bone is tender to the touch this is the most likely case. Don't lean on your elbows. If elbows are swollen or red, get them examined. If your hand is weak, seek medical care soon.
