Tingling and Numbness

A few years ago I fell and landed on my right hand wrong. The after two days of tingling and numbness I went to the doctor and he told me I stunned my nerves. After a few weeks it seemed to go away.  Now, ever once in awhile I get the same feeling and it lasts for a couple days.  The feeling starts at my elbow and goes down my arm to my little finger, ring finger and thumb. Is this cubital tunnel syndrome or something else? What can I do to get rid of it?

Yes, cubital tunnel syndrome is a possibility. In cubital tunnel syndrome, the ulnar nerve is compressed at the elbow. This causes numbness of pinky finger and that side of ring finger along with pain on the inner side of forearm. Treatment is usually through physiotherapy.
