Default Pain/strain on inside of left elbow when squatting

I have noticed over the last several months that on my heavy squat days I get a pain on the inside of my left elbow. Is this just par for the course when squatting heavy? The pain does go away after a day, or so.

I take a grip a little outside of my shoulders and really try to stay upright when I squat. I also really focus on squeezing my shoulder blades together, tightening my lats, and taking a big breath of air into my stomach (chest puffed out). It seems like the more upright I am, the stronger the strain on the elbows.
