Cell Phone Elbow

"Cleveland clinic" doctors say they're diagnosing patients with something called "cell phone elbow."

It is numbness, tingling, and pain in the forearm and hand caused by nerves getting compressed.

Symptoms include loss of muscle strength, coordination and mobility.

In very severe and untreated cases, doctors say the ring and pinkie finger may become clawed.

Doctors say schedule an appointment immediately if you feel any numbness or tingling in your hand or forearm.

In the medical community "cell phone elbow" is known as "cubital tunnel syndrome."
