Elbow pain at funny bone side and wrist pain at small round bone side. Been 1 month. Likely cause? Treatment?

Different causes: The medial elbow pain experienced in the funny elbow could be an ulnar neuropathy, or a medial epicondylitis. This will depend on other symptoms that might be experienced. If nerve problem, then numbness and weakness also present. The wrist pain could be referred from elbow or a separate problem.

Wrist pain can arise from many conditions such as joint inflammation, sprain/strain, avascular necrosis, fracture, arthritis, instability, etc, so the best thing would be to see an orthopedist for further evaluation.
