I'm not a doctor, but it is highly probable that you actually have both in what's called "double crush syndrome." That's when your nerve is crushed higher up making it more sensitive down the nerve to even slight impingement causing symptomology. In double crush, often the minor impingement symptoms are relieved by fixing the "real" problem.
For example, I had TOS and then tested positive for carpal tunnel. Now that I've had surgery, my carpal tunnel symptoms have disappeared but no one freed the nerve down at my wrist. Make sense?

When I get numbness in my ring finger, it is always just half of it.
But I also get a pain on the thumb side of my elbow.
1. have cubital tunnel because my ring finger splits in numbness
2. have thoracic outlet because i also have pain on my thumb side
