It could: You may irritated your ulner nerve. You may watch and wait. If you develop numbness of loss of feeling in the fingers see a doctor. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
