Although the disease originates from the elbow, the symptoms are felt in the hand. It is characterized by numbness and pain especially in the ring and little fingers.
Trauma to this area, anatomical differences, incorrect exercises and working positions can be the cause.
Complaints of numbness, especially at night and during work, are important. Diagnosis can be made with an appropriate physical examination and EMG. In its early stages, it is a condition that completely heals with simple life adaptations.
It rarely requires surgery. During surgery, the nerve may need to be relieved and relocated if necessary.
