What are the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome?

Cubital tunnel syndrome can cause an aching pain on the inside of the elbow. Most of the symptoms, however, occur in your hand. Sleeping with your elbow bent can aggravate symptoms. Numbness and tingling in the ring finger and little finger are common symptoms of ulnar nerve entrapment.

How is cubital tunnel syndrome diagnosed?

Just as with cubital tunnel syndrome, if you have any of these symptoms, your doctor may be able to diagnose radial tunnel syndrome by physical examination alone. He or she also may order electromyography to confirm the diagnosis, identify the area of nerve damage, and stage the severity of the condition.
