Thanks for writing to us.
Bialteral tenosynovitis and cubital tunnel syndrome is an inflammatory condition. Adequate treatment with anti inflammatory medicines and muscle relaxants provides the relief. You need to do a regular physiotherapy after the acute pain subsides. Recovery is usually complete.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
