: : I know this is a site for carpel t.s. but i have cubital tunnel syndrome. has anyone out there had experience with this? It is driving me nuts! i broke my right arm and the syndrome developed in my left arm 3 days after the right arm was casted. i won't go into details as my hand hurts right now but from surfing the net i have found some good sights on cubital t.s. my little finger and ring finger are in pins and needles really bad plus if anything touches them it is like an electrical shock - i try not to tounch anything as you can imagine, am in physio right now, am going for a nerve conduction test in jan. may try a shot of cortizone. the ortho md hopes now that my broken arm is on the mend, the cast and sling are off now - the cubital syndrome will quieten down. would appreciate any feedback. thank you.

: Hi Angela, This is Robbyn and I have cubital tunnel syndrome in both arms. I had surgery in March of this year on the left arm. Surgery hasn't been the answer for me. My hand specialist has labeled my case as " failed cubital tunnel surgery". I just went to see him last week and he has told me to try and live with it. He says that the follow up surgery for failed cubital tunnel surgery is only 50/50. Don't want to scare you , just want you to know the ropes, wish someone had warned me. The surgery is said to had an "iffy " success rate. If you would like more info ( symptoms, pain, etc. ) feel free to e-mail me
Hi,
I am supposed to have the surgery for cubital tunnel on my left arm in the next couple of weeks my doctor has tried everything else. I am really scared right now and it just helps to know there are other people out there with this syndrome. Would love to hear from any of you...
