Will Epicondylitis Ever Cause Numbness?

You can suffer from numbness or unpleasant tingling in some circumstances. This will occur when the injured muscle traps one or more nerves in you arm. The ulnar nerve is the most common nerve which will become trapped with tennis elbow.

Can Tennis Elbow Lead to Other Illnesses?

Epicondylitis can cause other muscle injuries to develop. For example, you might carry things with different muscles. If you favour some muscles over others, they can become overused and develop muscle injuries of their own. This is known as a “Vicious Cycle”.
