Re: Ulnar Nerve Entrapment, is it getting better?

Seems like our injuries are quite similar. All the information I've found online is just about people who get surgery, and supposedly if it's not better from 3-6 months from extreme pain, that's suppose to be the option.But, everything I've read, they usually have the claw hand or muscle wasting which I do not.

I'm against surgery as well. I'm trying to avoid it at all costs. Cortisone as well.
I do not however have an sharp pain. It's more of like a light dull pain after about 5 minutes of elbow bending. I do have small tingling in my left pinky and ring finger from prolonged bending as well. Comes and goes. The swelling has went down from icing. I wonder if this is the main problem since it's swollen over the cubital tunnel thus causing my ulnar nerve to become entrapped? Not exactly sure..

I have tried the nerve gliding exercises, but not so sure if they actually work.
What scares me is your injury is on 7 months, and our pain is very alike ):

I'm going to set up an appointment soon, I'll keep you updated and see what in the hell is going on.
Thanks for the replys!
