Specializes in Neurology

Ulnar neuropathy: little finger is innervated by the ulnar nerve and you may have an ulnar neuropathy causing this, most commonly it is at the elbow (due to leaning on the elbow against a hard surface), less commonly at the wrist (if you are a biker and keep your wrist flexed in the direction of the little finger for prolonged periods). EMG/NCS with a skilled neurologist in neurophysiology will confirm this
