Cubital tunnel syndr: Cubital tunnel syndrome is a compression neuropathy involving the ulnar nerve at the elbow. This nerve typically supplies sensation to the small finger and half the ring finger but more importantly supplies the majority of the intrinsic hand muscles which provide 1/2 total grip strength and finesse hand control. You should get this evaluated as if this nerve is in duress it can go away...forever
