See a Neurologist!: These are serious symptoms that need comprehensive evaluation. It is difficult to speculate on what the cause could be.

Compression : If you have the 3-5 fingers paralyzed the condition is called the ulnar neuropathy. The most common reason is a compression at the elbow or just belie elbow. Neurosurgical consultation is required.
