Thank you for writing to us.
I believe that you have an injury of the elbow or the soft tissue of the elbow. This has caused a swelling of the elbow area and numbness of the area because of compression of a nerve.
Icing the area is correct and then heating the area will promote blood flow and repair. By this way, you will achieve a cure quickly.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
