Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like
Most likely this is a problem with either your median nerve or your ulnar nerve in your wrist or your elbow, or both. Either or both nerves may have some compression problems.
I'd suggest you have your doctor evaluate this and I would get nerve conduction studies of that arm and either an MRI or a ct scan of the elbow and wrist
Is this likely to get worse or cause any use impairment and is it necessarily related to age ?? I have tried so hard since the accident and surgery to keep the arm/wrist and fingers mobile although slightly bent /swollen knuckles/ and some occasional aching.
Not really related to age and it could very well get worse in time.
If it in a compression problem seeing a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist (sometimes called a Sports Medicine doctor)--for hands on therapy could well relieve the problem Wendy
