Orthopaedics: See a consultant in Orthopaedic Surgery transposition of the ulnar nerve is an operation they perform to alleviate problems with the ulnar nerve. Please realize, a full history and physical needs to be performed and what you think is the ulnar nerve may be another structure you are manipulating. X-rays and MRI if possible likely. Stay calm and see Ortho.
