Nerve entrapment : Knowing the exact fingers involved would help the doctor provide a better answer. Medical or carpal nerve can commonly cause elbow and forearm pain with associated tingling sensation and numbness traveling to the hands and fingers. Other conditions can do this as well and evaluation by a doctor is recommended. Effective therapy is available in majority of the cases.
