I went for a nerve con. Test, the results stated the ulnar nerve is blocked and a demyelinating lesion. Please explain what this means (D.Lesion)

I went for a nerve con. Test, the results stated the ulnar nerve is blocked and a demyelinating lesion. Please explain what this means (D.Lesion)

Weakness: There is an electrical change in the nerve signal- conduction- across the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve provides signals to your forearm and hand. You may have had symptoms of sensory tingling at the elbow radiating to your 4, 5th finger and may have had weakness with flexion with these fingers also.
Demylinating means that the covering, myelin, is damaged. You must find the cause. ...Read more

Too nonspecific: The description you provide is too nonspecific to correlate a localization to a function. More than likely your doctor ordered this test for a certain reason, not the other way around.

Gradual numbness beginning in left ulnar region, then right ulnar, now starting in left median and occasionally up the arm. Nerve conduction study ok.

Arm Numbness: Sounds concerning, there are several conditions that can cause bilateral arm numbness. Disk herniations, spinal stenosis, entrapment neuropathies, trauma, among others. Do you get this at night, so you feel it when you wake up? Do you have any weakness, or pain? Do you have any other medical conditions, such as diabetes? These questions will help your doctor to discover the cause. ...Read more

Steve Jobs syndrome: Ulnar nerve entrapment or compression tends to initially have more sensory symptoms as opposed to motor symptoms. The ulnar nerve supplies or innervates many of the hand muscles including some of the muscles involved in control of the thumb (e.g. Adductor pollicis muscle). This may have caused the symptoms described. ...Read more

Ulnar nerve injury: It the injury was a straight cut and the surgeon was able to approximate the ends of the cut nerve the regeneration time is about 6-8 months for return of sensation. The degree of improvement is based on the ability to get both ends of the nerve back together. ...Read more

What is the question: Your English seems broken so I can't understand what your trying to say. I will assume that you were diagnosed with an ulnar neuropathy and your asking whether the eye twitching has any relationship to it? Not necessarily. The most common cause of eye twitching is benign fasciculations. However, at times other conditions such as anterior horn cell dz, nmj problem myasthenia, etc can be thought ...Read more

While using my mobile phone, my left hand's pinky and ring fingers get tingly and numb. I rarely use these fingers. What's happening to my ulnar nerve?

Agree, ulnar: You are temporarily pinching the nerve at elbow, when you bend for a long period. But you may also be resting on the elbow, which also compresses nerve. Be aware of these actions and perhaps vary your left arm position and even hold phone with right hand intermittently. ...Read more

How do you figure out if tingling in my left hand is coming from the ulnar/median nerve, neck, or thoracic spine? How do you figure out what nerve?

Exam, studies: Each nerve has a specific distribution and so a detailed physical exam goes a long way in determining the likely diagnosis. We then will often use a test called a nerve conduction test which then tests each specific nerve and this can tell specifically which nerve is affected and where as well. ...Read more

Can your left pinky ulnar styloid fracture cause middle finger trigger digit?

Can your left pinky ulnar styloid fracture cause middle finger trigger digit?

No the ulnar styloid: Is not directly connected there but if the hand is very swollen froma fracture and the trigger finger was waiting for a reason to become more symptomatioc then the swelling in the hadn could be the tipping point. But a direct cause...Unlikley. Causlality is a tricky issue as we often attribute one problem to another temporally, but you might as well blame a trigger finger on a thunderstorm. ...Read more

I noticed tingling & numbness in my left pinky & ring finger. Seems like my ulnar nerve is the culprit. Last 2 days my hand & arm seem weak, tho.

Poss ulnar nerve: You are right this could be due to your ulnar nerve. Since you have weakness you will want to get this checked. A nerve conduction study and treatment may be in your near future.

Accident 1 mo ago, pinched ulnar nerve. Chest pain when I lay on left or belly. Related? Had blood/ekg all normal. Also GERD symps. Neck shoulder pain

Ulnar nerve Sx: It is most likely that ur gerd is giving you the chest pain rather than your ulnar nerve. Patients w/ulnar nerve compression can have pain, numbness, tingling, cold hands/arms, neck ; shoulder pain; just about any symptom from the fingertips to the neck, but not chest pain. A good way to find out is to have a physician block (numb up) your ulnar nerve and see what sx go away. ...Read more

Have cubitus valgus in left hand as a result of old fracture, one month back I treated with ulnar nerve transposition, can I treat my elbow angel?

Cubitus Valgus: When the elbow angle is such that the hand goes away from the body with the and facing forward as the arm is at the side, is not often corrected if it due to a boney injury. The late affect can be a so called tardy ulnar nerve palsy. After nerve transposition to attempt osteotomy would not be strongly advised but even then the issue is often cosmetic when no ligaments are truly involved ...Read more

I have cubitus valgus in left hand as a result of old fracture, one month back I treated with ulnar nerve transposition, can I treat my elbow angel?

Cubitus valgus elbow: Angulation can place "tension" on the ulnar nerve and result in what is at times referred to as a tardy ulnar nerve palsy. Transposition is recommended to relieve that tension on the nerve. If the fracture is very old it is usually not wise to treat the deformity now especially after or with nerve surgery but of course its never an absolute, speak to your surgeon about your concerns. ...Read more
