I banged my elbow hard the other day and my pinky has been pretty numb since then with no improvement. What to do?

Nerve injury: Numbness and possibly pain can be indicative of a nerve injury. Whether "serious" or not depends on many factors. How long ago was the injury? Is there weakness in the arm?
