Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to diagnose anything like this. So I have to pass the buck and recommend that you see a biokineticist about this specifically. Or a physio, possibly. Just some thoughts on this one though - the fact that it happens in both arms suggests that IF it's a nerve issue, it might be in the back, because that way it would be common to both arms.
It might also be something structural, or mechanical, though that's not something I've heard of before. Another possibility, which I know happens with the knees, is that you can get degeneration in the cartilage, and it's possible that the same is happening in your elbows. This would make them susceptible to becoming inflamed when they're loaded heavily, and that would certainly explain why it gets worse and worse. Thinking about it, I suspect this to be the most likely scenario for you.
HOwever, as I said, it's probably best to see a biokineticist about it. I'm not sure if you have access to sports physicians, but that would be the best, I only say biokineticists because they're generally easier to find, and I don't know whether you can get to a sports doctor.
