Our hand contain two types of nerve that is radial and ulnar nerve. radial nerve is connected to radial bone and ulnar nerve is associated with ulnar bone. the ulnar nerve passes just below and it is not covered by any tissue. hence any sudden blow to elbow directly strikes ulnar nerve and that result in shock like feeling.
