Varies: There are a number of possibilities. A detailed exam and perhaps a nerve conduction test can tell the likely cause. There are approximately 20 nerve entrapment syndromes in the arm including carpal tunnel syndrome and cubical tunnel syndrome and it is probably one or more of the. The conduction test can distinguish between multiple causes.
