Insufficient data: Your symptoms are not typical of either textbook carplal tunnel syndrome or ulnar neuropathy but overlap syndromes are common. Don't trust Doctor Google. See a live physician. Most important is to distinguish WHERE & only then, what: whether it's a problem in the forearm, shoulder or neck.
