Cubital Tunnel Syn: Cubital tunnel syndrome describes a condition where the ulnar nerve is entrapped at the elbow. Affected patients often experience numbness/tingling along the little finger and the ulnar half of the ring finger. This discomfort may be accompanied by weakness of grip and, rarely, by intrinsic muscle wasting. I see you are on metformin which is important because dm can cause your problem. Good luck.

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.

Have it looked at: If it is only on one foot then there is a chance he could have a blood clot in that leg and should be looked at today. Swelling in one foot and numbness that came on all of a sudden shouldnt wait. Good luck.
