Default Anyone survived Ulnar Nerve Entrapment?

Hi. I've been dealing with some pain right at the rt. elbow. Found out it's U. Nerve entrapment.

I got it from playing a Dreadnought one time for about an hour. I've had it now about 1 1/2 months.

It is very localized at the elbow and I only feel pain doing certain movements.
I don't have any numbness or tingling in hands, fingers.

Dr. of course said ideal thing is to take a break for probably at least a month.
Stupid thing is I have 1 important Gig first week of April where I have to learn about 40 fingerstyle tunes.

If I were to take at least a month off, it would give me a short amount of time to work on my setlist. I'm afraid the pain would come back anyway as a result.

Or I just quit playing altogether for some months and cancel the Gig....but that bugs me because I know they'll never ask me back again, and it's a good gig. What a drag this stuff!

Anyone who has survived this stuff?
