elbow / ulner nerve

I was recently diagnosed with damage of the ulner nerve. My small finger on my left hand tingled and was
constantly "asleep". It then moved to my ring finger and part of my palm. It got so that I couldn't touch my
elbow in any way or else it would cause a jolt to my two fingers. Because I have epilepsy, I went to my
neurlogist who quickly stated it had nothing to do with the epilepsy, but instead was due to nerve damage
along the ulner nerve. Tomorrow I have an EMG performed. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm
pretty nervous. Is surgery inevitable? The dr. said that this does not get better on it's own and if it's not
treated, the nerve will wither away and die causing loss of feeling in my left hand. The dr. did prescribe an
anti-inflammatory medication and that temporarily helped the tenderness in the elbow. Any one else have a
similiar problem???

thanks for your help
