Ulnar nerve: There is a nerve right by the elbow-the ulnar nerve that can be injured. The bruise itself may be a hematoma that can cause pressure or irritation of the nerve. That should get better over time. Numbness going into the 4th and 5th fingers would be indicative of injury/irritation of the ulnar nerve. The natural history is that it should get better over a few weeks. If not, see your doctor. ...Read more

Elbow surgery: The interosseous membrane can be injured with elbow trauma. This runs between the bones in the forearm (radius and ulna). This can lead to pain in the forearm with pronation/supination (palm up/palm down). X-rays performed of the wrist will ensure that the distal radial ulnar joint was not involved in your accident and be a separate reason your wrist still hurts. ...Read more

You need to see Dr. Live Person (may require a neurologist consultation). ...Read more

2-3weeks of painful, sharp shooting veins. It has gone from my fingers, to wrist and sometimes up my elbows. Wrist splints don't help. Possible cause?

Exam needed: Your symptoms are very suggestive of carpal tunnel syndrome vs a possible cervical radiculopathy. I would suggest following with your doc and getting an EMG. If it appears to be carpal tunnel and the wrist sprints aren't helping, I would suggest seeing a hand surgeon at that point. Good luck! ...Read more
