It could be due to some nerve impingement that is occurring in your elbow or more likely in your wrist. There are also other inflammatory or even metabolic causes that must be considered. I think a visit to your primary care physician would be a good first place to start. ...Read more

If either of these get compressed (pinched) you can develop numbness or tingling or pain in your fingers. Sounds like you're doing this to your ulnar nerve. This is called Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. It it gets bad enough you could get permanent damage to your nerve. See your doctor soon. ...Read more
