UNCLEAR IF HEALING: So called cubital tunnel syndrome symptoms may suggest slow healing of ulnar nerve, and even may raise questions of localized inflammation or scarring which may prevent resolution. An EMG test can objectify the process, and point the way to successful outcome. But be aware that surgery in the end may be the best option.
