Hi, probably this is due to ulnar nerve entrapment. Resting on elbows at work, using elbows to lift the body from bed, and resting elbows on car windows while driving all are causes of paraesthesia (tingling)

Try mild pain killers along with vitamin B preparations for a week. For more information visit http://www.emedicine.com/Orthoped/topic574.htm
