See your doctor: See your doctor. She or he can take a good history, exam you and send you to the appropriate specialist. Your symptoms might come from a neck problem or a problem with the nerves in your arm itself.

Cubital tunnel: This is called a cubital tunnel syndrome as the result of ulnar nerve compression or injury at the level of the elbow. See an orthopedist.

True. The symptoms can also come from a neck problem. Agree with seeing a hand specialist or orthopaedic surgeon.
