In brief: Numbness, pain

Typically cubital tunnel syndrome will manifest as numbness and/or tingling in the small finger and the ulnar or outside half of the ring finger. More advanced cases can cause pain about the medial elbow, weakness and clumsiness in the hand and eventually muscle wastig in the hand.

In brief: Numbness/tingling.

Cubital tunnel syndrome is due to compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow.
Symptoms include numbness/tingling in the small and ulnar half of the ring finger, pain, and hand weakness. Extreme elbow flexion and pressure on the medial (inside) part of the elbow can exacerbate symptoms. Treatment consists of therapy, oral/injectable steroids and surgery to release and/or move the ulnar nerve.

In brief: Cubital Tunnel

Cubital tunnel is a syndrome characterized by numbness and tingling in the small and ring finger. As the problem worsens, symptoms go from intermittent to constant.
In later stages, hand may become weak and/or clumsy, especially with fine motor activities (buttoning a shirt). Many note symptoms worsen with elbow flexion.
