Pain in my right elbow. Could this just be stress...

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am a 30 yr old male and for the last several months have had anxiety issues. Several months ago I was diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome and it has slowly healed and not hurting anymore. Earlier today it started aching some and that comes and goes and also when I am at my computer my hand starts to feel like it wants to go to sleep. Could this just be from all the anxiety sympyoms....

    Hi Kevin,

    I have been having the same issues. I have had severe anxiety for the past 2 months and I am extremely tense. I constantly have my right shoulder tensed up to my chin t9 the point my shoulder hurts and feels weak and heavy like I have been lifting weights. It's making my whole right arm feel heavy. I google symptoms all day f9r hours and have my arms bent and also sleep with them bent under my chin. I can't get rid of the tension. My hand has been feeling weak as well and I was wondering if I has cubital tunnel.

    If you've already got a diagnosis in the past for a problem in that area,I would say its more likely that than anxiety I would say

    Definitly computer related. I work on one all day and know about that! Ive torn a ligament in that area from working out too. Takes long to heal. But I get it...Anxiety can mess with your head so you can't tell if its really physical or not. I would lean to the side of it being computer related.
