ok, very good....
is there any redness to the skin where it hurts? any warmth to the skin? when you press on the sore spot do any of your fingers hurt? if so, which ones....
no redness, no warmth, none of my fingers hert but the pain dose go down the middle / side of my arm, some times down to my wrist, but if i move the spot from left to right , like to push on it and move it from side to side , it makes all most up to my middle finger up to the nucule twich or i can see it move, after i let go the pain starts from the spot down to about half way down my arm.
sounds like you have a problem with the ulnar nerve... the nerve that makes your arm tingle if you hit your elbow wrong.... the 'funny bone'.... as most would call it....
the right thing to do for the moment is to keep the elbow flexed and in a sling and to apply ice to the area.... but, soon, you WILL need to see a physician... if you can choose, I would pick an orthopedist as they know the most about this.... a family practice doc would do almost as well....
The point is to find out what is causing this and to fix it.... occasionally, ulnar nerve problems can require surgery... but for now, resting your arm and icing it and taking motrin or alleve (if you are not allergic) would be a good first step.... after that you need a physician to touch and examine you to get to the diagnosis.
