Unfortunately my college trainer does not seem to think that this is a serious matter,  I have gone to a neurologist on my own and all nerves seem to be functioning well according to the nerve test that was conducted, that being said it has left me wondering what It is. I have switched from almost all the doctors in my area because they seem to ask for my symptoms and just give me anti-inflammation pills and pain killers or tell me to try and play a different position. Prior to this injury I had tennis/ golfers elbow. As I was doing some dips to strengthen my upper body at physical therapy when I finished I felt a cramp feeling in my hand and numbness in my entire arm. It was after that where I have felt a shock as I would release the ball. After that I would get carpal tunnel symptoms as well for a while.

16yo had tingly feeling and elbow pain last year once he grew to 6' and started trying to throw harder. Nothing structurally wrong, but he has had to learn to throw all over again. At this point he is able to throw without pain, with the same or better velo, but his accuracy and finer points of pitching are still a work in progress with his new motion.

   I am not a doctor, but my wife is. While she understood the diagnosis far better than a lay person, she would emphasize that orthopedics(or whatever specialty pitching injuries see) are not her specialty, and that seeing a competent specialist who understands arms, and pitchers, is necessary. In out case we had a fantastic PT guy, who was a trainer for Team USA baseball, and treated pro pitchers also.

   Seems to me that Leftymagic has the right of it...but what do I know, I'm just some guy on the internet.
