    Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

    Does anyone currently have this or had it? It's Carpal Tunnel's little brother.

    Dr. said my options are to leave it alone or surgery (short downtime).

    It affects my every day life and every time I hit a golf ball, it's similar to a little stinger on my funny bone every time with numbness and tingling on my ring finger and pinky finger.

    If you have it, do you just live with it? Does anything help?

    If you had surgery, did it help?

    Thanks!

    I had it and had surgery for it. No problems now and the recovery was a breeze. My hand did look like Mickey Mouse's for a couple of days after the surgery though. I had really bad numbness in my fingers but not much pain. I was worried about muscle atrophy more than pain.

    Had symptoms of this, currently wear a brace that keeps my elbow at an appropriate angle when I sleep. Seems to have alleviated the symptoms so far.
