What is Cubital Tunnel Syndrome?

Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. When the pressure on the nerve becomes great enough to disturb the way the nerve works, then numbness, tingling, and pain may be felt in the elbow, forearm, hand, and/or fingers.
