Anyone ever had problems with their ulnar nerve? I got a new office chair with hard arm rests and over the past two weeks I was evidently resting my elbow on it a lot and agitated something down in my elbow. My pinky and ring finger went slightly numb/tingly and it's been two weeks of very gradual but noticeable improvement. I've barely used my arm at all since then and I've let it heal while taking moderate doses of ibuprofen. How important is it to see a doctor if it's only slightly numb after 10 days or so? Anyone know the timeline for these injuries from experience?
