Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome
Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome is the name of a condition related to the ulnar nerve which brings feeling to the outer part of the forearm and to the ring and little fingers. If you feel numbness or tingling in these areas, chances are you have a problem with your ulnar nerve. Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is another name for this distressing condition.
The ulnar nerve is designed to slide through a notch between two bones at the end of the humerus bone of the upper arm - the olecranon (the tip of the elbow) and the medial epicondyle. The space between these two bony points is the ulnar tunnel. Understanding the
