What causes repetitive stress nerve problems in the elbow?

Just as repetitive motions with your hands can cause a repetitive stress injury in the wrist, repeated motions of the arms or putting excess pressure on the elbow where the nerve is exposed (the "funny bone" area), can cause nerve problems, or neuropathy. The most common motions for such a problem include constantly leaning on your elbow on a hard surface, such as a desk or even chair arm rests, or using heavy machinery, that sends vibrations up the arm.
