Injured Elbow

Yesterday morning while getting ready for work, I fell due to my toe getting caught in my pajama pants. On the way down I hit my elbow and the area about an inch above my wrist with all of my weight and the force of the fall. My whole left arm went numb and I was not able to use it at all for about 30-45 mins. When I move it and it bends, I have a pain that starts at my elbow and goes down to the outside part of my hand where the other impact happened. It is brusied and has some slight swelling. It hurts to touch it on anything. Sometimes leaving my arm straight hurts it as well. Could it be broken or fractured? I know there is no definitely no sure way to know unless it is xray.
