At least 20 years ago I fell on some ice and rammed my elbow, with my weight behind it, onto the hard ice. It hurt for awhile, then the pain went away. After that I noticed a loose chip at the end of my elbow. The chip would float around at times and depending on the angle of pressure on it could cause quite a bit of pain.

At times the chip seemed to calcify onto the bone so I had no pain unless another injury knocked the chip loose again. The main pain would be while sleeping. Depending on how I moved and pressure, pain would wake me up.

Then, not enough pain to even notice. I injured it again recently, the chip didn't come loose but I am getting carpal tunnel symptoms. My right thumb has a pins and needles numbness. It isn't the pain that bothers me, just the fairly constant tingling and numbness.

Can the elbow injury and the recent numbness be related? Thanks.

  • I have the same problem i elbowed some one in a fight 2 days ago and i didn't realize how bad it was but once the swelling went down i realized the tip of my elbow had a crack or chip taken out. It doesn't really hurt unless i bang it or put weight on it but i feel a slight numbness all the way up my arm to my fingers. i think there might be nerve damage but i dont know if i should get it checked out by a doctor or if it will fix by its self,any suggestions?
