Flicking ulnar nerve 31-Mar-2005 At 11:39:14 AM LittleJames
Has anyone had any experience with this condition before? My ulnar nerves on both my elbows flick quite noticeably, but for four years it never affected my climbing - until about a month ago, when within a week or so I went from nothing to being almost unable to pull down (pain and numbness). I went to a sports physician this morning, who told me that outside of surgery there's really nothing that can be done.

Has anyone else had problems with this before? And if so, do they have any ideas for treatment/management? The surgery suggested involves transposing my ulnar nerve around to the front of my elbow(!), but I'm extremely reluctant because of the possibility of serious complications (including having my right hand turned into a claw for the rest of my life!).

No more climbing isn't a good option, but unfortunately it's starting to look that way... :(
