Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
The pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow causes cubital tunnel syndrome. Funnybone is the site which can exert pressure on the ulnar nerve as it passes next to the bone in that area.
Symptoms of Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Pain in elbow, hand, forearm, or fingers.
The feeling of tingling, or numbness in the wrist.
Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Wear an elbow pad
Wear a splint at night
Surgery helps relieve pressure on the nerve. The surgery involves shifting of the nerve to front of the elbow. This shifting places nerve under a layer of fat or trimming the funny bone.
