The physio I saw has just passed it off and actually took a while to get to this diagnosis, ie milking the cow, and I will not return. In fact he just finally told me it was a nerve problem, without giving me a real name/diagnosis. Hence I am looking for a second opinion.
Without further testing, not sure where exactly the compression is taking place. But it's not really going away. Often it doesn't come during the climbing itself but after (Think a few hours or a day and then it's a bit sharper)

Good excuse to not to have to spoon! "But my doctor said I can't"

On a serious note, I find it feels better when I retract the scapula so maybe it's not (just) compression at the elbow? So yes I'm looking for a specialist in this area in the Sydney region.

I could also stop climbing too but that's not a suitable solution for me. Seems the only safe thing I can now do is ski...if you don't count the snowboarders sitting across the hill having their lunch or their faster brethren falling over in front of me that I have to dodge
