I don't like disc injury for this one. A disc injury would not be affected by leaning on one's elbow.

I think a nerve compression syndrome, like a carpal tunnel or an ulnar compression or others that are probably not even named.

Next time it happens, pay attention to exactly where you feel the numbness, ie which fingers, palm side or dorsal side, etc.

The good news is, many of the symptoms can probably be avoided simply by sleeping in non-provocative postures, and not leaning on your elbows.

Annoyingly, things like this creep up on you as you age. Just manage it.
