Allows the ulnar nerve to get trapped and inflamed causing numbness and tingling in my little finger and ring finger the only remedy is to keep my arm entirely straight and not bend my elbow which is difficult at night so I have to wear a rigid brace

Did you go to an orthopedist and have it assessed.. physical exam, x-rays, or scan? The surgery for an entrapped ulna nerve only takes a short time. I cannot tell you much about the pain because I had shoulder surgery at same time and that was my overwhelming any other pain I had. Now it gets a little tender if I lean on it when sitting or crook my arm wrong when sleeping. I use a pillow in my chair to rest my elbow on. The surgery elbow is on my left side and I have to lay on my right side. For another problem I lay my arm on a travel size pillow between my rib to hip area to rest my arm on. I sometimes use elbow brace to help out when I am working on something that causes my elbow to work a lot. The numbness is gone and only painful if I lean on it too hard or overwork it.

You need to get it looked at before the damage cannot be reversed.
