From the no pain, no gain file: That numbness, tingling or pain in your forearm and hand may be a mystery no longer. You could have cell phone elbow.
This isn’t just something that doctors just made up recently — although we wouldn’t put it past them. It’s a real condition known as cubital tunnel syndrome.
It’s caused by compression of the ulnar nerve when the elbow is flexed for a long time.
You’ve probably never heard of the ulnar nerve before, but you’ve felt it. It causes pain when you hit your “funny bone.”
Is there a cure? If it gets bad enough, surgery is necessary.
But the fixes are much easier than that. Use hands-free phone accessories more often. And switch hands every ten minutes when you’re on a long call.
