Not sure if this got through yesterday (I received a bounce):
Best advice, see a specialist.
I had the beginnings of Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (2nd to Carpal in
"popularity" according to my Doctor). He was able to diagnose and
treat the problem. Since I went early (my wife is a Pianist, so she
didn't let me delay) I have been able to totally control the issue. I
do things differently, and take more care with the elbow and it is
absolutely no issue (I've even been able to return to racquetball).
Long story short, see someone who specializes in these issues. Don't
self-diagnose, or self-treat, it is too risky. The earlier you deal
with the issues, the better the outcome.
