Numbness left hand middle to pinky. Bone spurs in neck and ddd in lower back.

Unclear: Numbness in hand from middle to pinky suggests ulnar nerve impingement. If bone spurs were related pattern would usually be different from this. However, a C8 root syndrome might produce this pattern. Try to draw a line around the area of numbness (including all parts that are numb - hand and arm). Show to doctor. EMG/NCV study could be helpful. ...Read more

What you need is a scan of your lumbosacral spine, not your "butt." ...Read more
