That and you might also want to try some trigger point work & a bit of self massage in the forearms and even maybe uppers and then stretch the forearm muscles some to loosen the tension.
Do you get any elbow pain?

Well, if you do the trigger point therapy, it is probably advisable to then stretch the forearm muscles by pulling the hands in directions to stretch the wrist and forearm muscles. In therapies such as ART, or Active Release Therapy, the muscles slowly build up micro tears and small lesions and need to be stretched out and (for lack of a better word) re-educated to allow them to relax some and not hold so much tension. That is another reason for maybe some foam rolling and or self massage after some of those trigger point sessions.
Sometimes pain and cramping in joint/muscle areas are caused by tension or a harder ability to relax that tension or an almost constriction of tiny blood cells.
Can I ask if you are a somewhat nervous person? (As I am/was at times and have the same kind of issues at times) Relaxing, more, less stress, some foods and or supplements can also help ie; mag or calcium at the right times etc. Too much caffiene or CNS stims for me, will at times have me overtensing in areas.
Also, the wrist wraps could help too, at least while you are doing the lifts.
Another question might be, what exercise(s) did you do before, or did you do grip type exercsies the day befored?

I'm suffering from the same thing, in my left wrist to elbow area mainly. It effects me while doing upright rows and bi curls Etc. I've read up about "lifters elbow" or tennis elbow. It's called a lot of things but sounds exactly like the symptoms I've got. I need a way to relieve it. Bought some wrist straps and hopefully it'll help.

I saw one comment about a de-load, perhaps it's my background, but I think taking a week off to rest and recover might not be a bad idea. Pain is your body sending you a message, listen up before you get a repetitive strain injury. Then hit the gym with the wraps mentioned and see how it goes.

Do you use a thumb over or under grip, a lot of guys I see doing thumb under grip roll there wrist back when pressing which is very bad for the wrists. Next time you bench pay attention to the back of your hand it should be a straight line through to the forarm, there shouldn't be any degrea of flexing. if this is the issue drop a few pounds on the bar and try keeping your wrist straight, its should take care of the issue.

Research Rock Climbing stretches for your tendons and ligaments in your muscles and forearms. They help a ton.

There ya go. When I had elbow tendenosis/itis whatever, the trigger points and stretching were a god send. I used to do skull crushers then a day later my elbows ached like a tooth ache. Once I started locating those points and then stretching afterwards, my tendons and ligs seemed to loosen up.
I also understand pain, but there is also a difference between pain and injury. There can be pain, without actual injury too.

I used to get the same pain in my forearms.. I started supplementing with a bottle of cissus and within a week the pain went away..

I have not experienced any persistent joint pain after using I started using hyaluronic acid, MSM, Chondritrin and glucosamine. Placebo or not, its working for me and I would surely recommend trying it.

I had the same thing and boosted my fish oil, started taking cissus, plus using wrist straps. The pain didn't go away completely but got much better

That is just tendon inflammation...you need to stay away from movements that inflame that area for 2 or 3 weeks and let it heal. Take ibuprofen regularly....this is not a wrist wrap issue.
