Medain Nerve Sprain?

So I was doing wide grip pull ups yesterday when all of a sudden I started feeling a warm burning sensation in the medial side of my left elbow. I continued my superset until the pain grew more acute and I decided it was a good idea to call it a day.

The pain radiates from my elbow up into the top of my deltoid and is accompanied oddly by icy tingly sensations in my bicep which leads me to believe it may be a nerve sprain and not muscle or ligament related. There is no swelling. The pain again is not exactly localized, it just starts on the side of the elbow and radiates up my arm. Anyone experience a similar injury? Any treatment recommendations other than R.I.C.E???

Does sound like a nerve issue. I would wait a day or two. If it doesn’t get better see an MD pronto.
