Sorry you're going through this. I have a player that has been dealing with this for a couple years, not a pitcher. I get flare ups myself, so we have talked about it a few times. She saw several specialists...for whatever reasons they decided not to go for surgery yet. Interestingly, after more than a year of frustration, a new doc suggested that she may be either causing or contributing to the irritation/inflammation by how she slept. Put her in a sleeve that didn't allow her to bend her elbow (put her hand under her head) while sleeping. Doctor said that sleeping with your elbow bent sharply...hand under your head...causes a lot of strain on the nerve. Big improvement, she feels almost normal now...compared to having severe elbow pain and two completely numb fingers. I have pretty much trained myself not to sleep with my hand under my head too...it has helped quite a bit. Just throwing it out there for something to consider...it may be something other than throwing that is causing consistent irritation and inflammation[MENTION=16264]Laphoneman[/MENTION] Thanks for your kind words. It does not appear that any particular motion (other than throwing in general) causes this condition as far as I can tell from my research. It is not an entirely uncommon condition for overhead throwing athletes of all kinds.
