Elbow clicks when bent, been 2 years. Numbness in pinky and ring finger, gone when no physical activity for a few weeks. Maybe ulnar nerve?

3 weeks ago my two last fingers of my left hand went numb, I was told it's pinged nerve in elbow. Then fingers became painful. Now, the whole hand. ?

Ulnar neuropathy: Your symptoms appear, at first glance, to be an ulnar neuropathy. I share your concerns, however, if you are having symptoms in the rest of the hand as well. If you are having weakness in the hand, forearm or arm I would be concerned about a brachial plexopathy (injury to the network of nerves in the shoulder). I would discuss with your primary doctor, and consider a neurologist. Take Care! ...Read more

Generic advice: Avoid leaning on your elbow, or bumping your elbow. A B-100 complex might add some support. An anti-inflammatory such as Aleve (naproxen) or Ibuprofen might blunt the inflammation. Minor nerve pinching could reverse within a few weeks, but deeper damage may take months. If does not depart or gets worse, may need to have an EMG test.
