Thank you for the information,

The intermittent numbness & tingling sensation are related to nerve impulses .

It can be due to pinching of a nerve or its root any where in its course , in the spine or in the arm like behind the elbow joint.

The other causes are low calcium or electrolytes, vitamins , thyroid diseases, diabetes, or other nerve diseases.

You need to see doctor as it is continuing for 3 days for an examination & find out the cause.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
