In brief: Ulnar Nerve

Are you referring to cubital tunnel syndrome where compression of your ulnar nerve is causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness into the hand? Usually this can be treated by decreasing the amount of time you are in a flexed elbow position at work, in a car, and during sleep.
A small knee pain on your elbow with the pad in the front will help you keep your arm straight at night.
