A 21-year-old female asked:
I'm experiencing left leg and arm numbness, extreme discomfort + tingling in the pinky and ring finger for a year, could it be ulnar nerve neuropathy?

Not all: Ulnar neuropathy would not explain all of the symptoms since it would only involve the upper extremity. To account for symptoms in the arm and leg would suggest either a process that that diffusely affects nerves in the arm and leg or a process in the spinal cord. A thorough neurological examination should help to differentiate.
