Is there really a funny bone?

Is there really a funny bone?

Your funny bone isn't actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve:

  • The ulnar nerve lets your brain know about feelings in your fourth and fifth fingers.
  • It's also one of the nerves that controls some movement of your hand.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Have you ever hit the inside of your elbow in just the right spot and felt a tingling or prickly kind of dull pain? That's your funny bone! It doesn't really hurt as much as it feels weird. The "funny bone" got its nickname because of that "funny feeling" you get after you hit it.
