I have what appear to be the symptoms of ulnar nueropathy, but the shoulder MRI and neck MRI show all is normal in my nerve passages. 2 EMG's one for carpel tunnel and one by my nuerologist showed no carpel tunnel, but inconclusive for the ulnar nerve. My neurologist has suggested I stop "typing" because that task increases the finger numbness, pain, and inflammation. WHAT do I do now. My thumb is already dropping, I can't hold a fork to cut my food, button my pants, buckle my seat belt, and holding the stearing wheel cause extreme pain similar to typing. I am losing muscle mass in my hand and my little finger and ring finger are starting to curl. My hand cramps in funny positions and my fingers twitch when the hand is at rest, making sleep difficult. HELP.
