A new medical condition known as cell phone elbow has been identified in people who spend hours a day chattering away to friends and colleagues on their mobiles.

According to doctors, the condition is brought about by the way we hold our hphones when we talk to people, as we are putting our elbo in an unnatural position for an extended period of time.

The proper medical name for cell phone elbow is cubital tunnel syndrome, and is characterized by the compression of the ulnar nerve.

Symptoms of cell phone elbow range from tingling in the hand and loss of muscle coordination, to numbness in fingers.

The only way that doctors have figured out to reduce your chances of developing the condition, is to not spend as much time on your cell. Why not use speaker phone?
