Hi, I hit my elbow yesterday, and my hand has been numb since, but now the numbness is going up my arm. And every time I move it, it hurts really bad.
Local measures first: You hit your ulnar nerve. Pain medicine such as Advil (ibuprofen) will help. Warm compresses may help as well. How long it takes for the pain and numbness to go away depends on how hard you hit it. If the symptoms start to subside within the next couple of days, then just be patient If it gradually gets worse, you will need to call your physician or a physiatrist. Fortunately, that is a less likely scen ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How numb, how long?: In the case of "one time things", ie an event which has never before happened to you but does not immediately seem serious can be monitored (by you). Things to take into account: how long is this lasting, are symptoms progressing, is pain developing, does blood flow (denoted by color and temperature) seem to be adequate, are symptoms spreading to other body parts? Care but be aware! ...Read more

If the thumb index and middle fingers carpal tunnel syndrome could be the cause. If the sensation affects the ring and pinky fingers, cubital syndrome could be the cause. Carpal tunnel is a median nerve impingement at the wrist. Cubital tunnel syndrome is an ulnar nerve impingement at the elbow. ...Read more

See a hand surgeon: Stabbing a finger can be a potentially worse injury than it seems. There are numerous structures (tendons, nerves, blood vessels, joints and ligaments) all in a very small space.

Ulnar nerve: It sounds like it could be a problem of your ulnar nerve which commonly is considered the "funny-bone" like when you hit your elbow. Pressure there may create forearm aches/numbness and often fourth finger and pinky go numb too. Avoiding pressure over there may help, but the nerve may become damaged and need to be managed more aggressively. A specialist eval. may be helpful if it persists. ...Read more
