Ulnar Nerve Compression Anyone?

Hi all!

I have had RA now for 16+ years. The latest little gem it has bestowed upon my body is to destroy my right elbow to the point where it is affecting my ulnar nerve. The pain from the elbow joint is NOTHING compared to the pinched nerve aggravation/pain.

My question- has anyone experienced this, and if so, did you find anything that helped?

Oh, and btw, I guess I should have added- I am on Enbrel, Lodine and Leflunomide. As far as I can tell, there is no active inflammation in my elbow. I have been to an orthopedic surgeon.

Yes! I have RA & Uln?r nerve compression. My right elbow hurts and I have horrible arm & wrist pain & numbness. My rheumatologist fitted me for a wrist brace. I even sleep in it. It helps! Sorry you have this.
RA gal,
Janet
