Tough to say: Pain in the small finger can be due to many things including nerve compression, tendinitis, or inflammation. Best to see an orthopedist or hand specialist for further evaluation. Further tests may be needed.

Many things: Nighttime pain can because by a lot of different things including arthritis, tendinitis, and peripheral nerve compression. One very common thing is carpal tunnel syndrome. Best to see a physician or orthopedic specialist for further evaluation.

Maybe: Many times the exact cause of carpal tunnel is not determined...Some people just get it. Some repetitive activities (usually associated with vibration) can cause swelling within the tendons of your carpal tunnel, which may increase pressure on the nerve involved. This may relate to frequency/duration of masturbation. Stop masturbating and see if your symptoms improve.
