Tingling fingers: This sounds like there could be irritation or injury to the ulnar nerve along its pathway down the left arm, around the elbow and into the left hand. There also could be irritation or injury of the nerve roots in the left neck region, primarily the C8 and/or T1 nerve roots. A physical exam, electrodiagnostic testing and possibly an imaging study could help determine the cause of the tingling.
