I was denied a worker comp claim for ulnar nerve/ I do alot of keyboard keying on computer as well as a larger scanner. I guess they felt I'd give up if they said it wasn't work related, but I'm seeking an attorney's advice now. My arm from elbow to small & ring fingers are involved. I'd like to know of others who have had pain and coldness and numbing, and what they have done about it.
