Hey all,

I had the cubital tunnel nerve transposition and carpal tunnel on my right hand on Feb. 1. Before the surgery, I had numbness on my entire hand when I slept, extreme pain in the middle, ring, and pinky finger. Some days it felt better, some days it felt worse. I had to wait so long to get a surgery because workers comp. took that long to approve it. I do think the surgery worked. Some days now I have a liitle pain and numbness in my fingers, and other days no pain at all. Sometimes after surgery, you have to distinguish which is the surgery pain and which is the pain from carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel nerves. After you heal a little bit, it is easier to tell if the surgery was a success. I now have to decide if I am going to do my left side. I also have pain on my left side on the outside of my elbow and on the back of the elbow. I am not sure if that is the radial nerve or not. I hope not, I have enough nerve problems. I also have pain in my upper arm and shoulder. The nerve condition test was positive for cubital and carpal tunnel syndrome. Does anyone know if on the top side of the elbow and back is the ulnar nerve or is it some other nerve?

I have had pain in my shoulder sometimes too. I think that nerve runs through the shoulder and probably can be inflamed there like at the elbow.

If I use the computer for a long time I have pain that runs along my shoulder blade to my neck. I'm not sure if it's related to my cubital tunnel or simply a stiff neck. I try to take frequent breaks and move around alot, but my job requires me to use the computer all day, so I don't have much choice, unless I want another career.

Hi Joe,

Yes, the ulnar nerve actually starts at the side of the neck, where nerves are connected to the spine and exit through small openings between the vertebrae. The ulnar nerve travels through the shoulder, down the arm and around the elbow, terminating in the hand.

I too have shoulder pain that I feel is related to my cubital tunnel syndrome. The pain in my elbow seems to flare up at the same time as my shoulder pain.

Thanks for writing!
