Possible pinched nerve/damage?

I have hit my funny bone on my right elbow an extreme amount of times, and now any time I hit it, my arm starts to tingle, go numb, and/or feel sore for up to days on end. And I can almost feel the nerve popping out of my elbow a bit, should I go see a doctor for this? It's been like this for at least the last 6 months

    Nerve damage can often last a lifetime. I fell on an outdoor basketball court at age 17 and landed on my right elbow damaging the nerve. I am now 65 and it is still sensitive when bumped a certain way. I don't know if a neurologist can help because I never went to one though. I think it is worth doing though.

      It's extremely sensitive, I'm currently laying in bed and yet, its acting up and when its bent it hurts more. I'm just worried because I'm a musician and I dont want my hand to start being affected by it. Thanks for some intel!

    You should consult a specialist for that.
