Ok the other day i was in a pool and smacked my elbow pretty hard on the side. It felt like when you hit your funny bone but A LOT harder. Now when I play guitar my pinky feels weak and just doesn't feel coordinated with the guitar...When I touch part of my elbow I can feel something tingle in my pinky. Im not sure what I did but I think I may have hurt a nerve or something. Can you guys give me some suggestions on what to do or has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?

I mean there isn't really a lot of pain but if i touch the area where I hit it my pinky will get tingly and ****...I'm pretty sure I didn't damage it severely...I'll just see what happens in a few days and if it doesn't go away ill go see a doctor. Thanks guys

ya that happened to me..and when you move your elbow you feel something weird like..moving through your arm?

just dont play guitar for a while, it will hurt especially when bending, like you will feel something wrong...if it stays like this after a week go see a doctor

hope you get better man

Sounds like a pinched nerve, like everyone else says... I'd say you bruised it real good and the area around the nerve has swelled. Ice it down some and see if it gets feeling back. If not, I might go to the doc in a day or two.
Inna gotta davita.

What?

like 2 weeks...what i did is i took a warm towel and wraped(sp?) around my elbow for like 2 hours a day..so just laying there in my bed watching a movie or reading etc..that kinda relieves it, but hey im no doctor...but ya 2 weeks of no guitar man it was tough
