Doctor insights on:
Ulnar Nerve Neuropraxia
Various causes: Most common is Ulnar Neuropathy caused by the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. The ulnar nerve gets compressed at the inner side of the elbow resulting in numbness and tingling radiating from the elbow, down the medial forearm, to the 4th and 5th fingers.

A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
Ulnar nerve injury: An ulnar nerve injury occurs due to trauma or compression, often at the inner elbow. It may cause numbness of the forearm and hand and weakness, especially in the hand. It can be treated with splinting, but often surgery is needed for severe cases. http://www.neurocuro.com/peripheral-nerve-entrapment/ ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have minor ulnar nerve damage at elbow. The injury occurred June 2014. I still have aching and numbness. Should I be concerned???
UNCLEAR IF HEALING: So called cubital tunnel syndrome symptoms may suggest slow healing of ulnar nerve, and even may raise questions of localized inflammation or scarring which may prevent resolution. An EMG test can objectify the process, and point the way to successful outcome. But be aware that surgery in the end may be the best option. ...Read more
Does nerve damage and similar symptoms to ulnar nerve entrapment go along with spengels disease. I suffer from a raised scapula when flexing pectorali?
Two different things: You mentioned at least two different things. Sprengel's disease is a rare congenital deformity where one scapula is higher than another. The other thing you described is a "winged" scapula, where it "sticks out" when pressing against a wall. This is from damage to the long thoracic nerve. The treatment for sprengels' is surgery, which could conceivably damage the ltn and lead to winging. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: The median nerve primarily controls the first 3 fingers whereas the ulnar controls the 4th ( ring finger) and the 5th ( pinkie ) digit. Depending on the severity of the damage (how was this determined ? An EMG??) to the nerve a person may start getting "Fasiculations" which is the spontaneous/ uncoordinated contraction of muscle that the damaged nerve supplies. Muscle twitching might occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes to your question: Damage to any nerve that supplies a muscle may cause twitching. When the ulnar nerve is damaged, twitching may occur along the medial forearm, and many muscles that move the fingers - such as the muscles that move the fingers apart and together and the muscles that help the fingers curl and grip. http://www.neurocuro.com/peripheral-nerve-entrapment/ ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. Some nerves are purely sensory while others carry both sensory and motor fibers. Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
