    Ulnar neuropathy is similar to carpal tunnel only it's in your elbow. It's when the "funny bone nerve" gets pinched, so you basically have the pain and tingling you would have if you hit your funny bone. Mine was all of the time, especially at night, until I just about couldn't use my arm anymore. That's when I decided on the surgery. I can still tell occasionally that I have a problem in my left arm if I touch or hit where the funny bone nerve is (it seems closer to the surface since they unpinched it) but it doesn't cause the continual pain that it did before. I've got a great neurosurgeon who also did a cervical fusion (C4-5-6) that also put me out of a lot of pain that apparently wasn't fibro-related. Hope this explains a little of what ulnar neuropathy is and will do.
