Depends on where: the nerve is being impinged. If it at the usual place in the ulnar groove at your elbow, you would need an elbow pad, not a wrist brace

Start with PCP: I would start with your primary care physician. He might want to order further testing or refer you to a neurologist or a neurosurgeon.

Simple but effective: Not a cure, but try this buy 2 simple items: a terrycloth tennis towel ( sold in sports stores ) and a pull-on neoprene ( body glove) tube wrist support: wear the pull on neoprene support OVER the tennis towel and use OTC antiinflammatory meds like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) ( if not allergic)
