Could be : Cubital tunnel syndrome which involves pinching of ulnar nerve at elbow. This may be very temporary based on your description, but if persistent, see your doc. Most of these problems involve bumping or sleeping on "funny bone", and are rapidly reversible. ...Read more

Poss ulnar nerve: You are right this could be due to your ulnar nerve. Since you have weakness you will want to get this checked. A nerve conduction study and treatment may be in your near future. http://www.neurocuro.com/peripheral-nerve-entrapment/ ...Read more

Numbness in my left pinky and ring finger and chronic back pain also ?

Numbness in my left pinky and ring finger and chronic back pain also ?

Numbness in hand: The most common causes of numbness in the pinky and ring finger is compression of the nerve at one of four places: the wrist, the elbow, the armpit, or the neck. The condition is unrelated to the chronic low back pain, although it is possible that you have arthritis in your neck and your low back that underlies both symptoms. ...Read more

I've been having numbness in my left ring an pinky finger the past 3 days. The week prior I had severe pain in the area behind my elbow. This tells me it's a pinched nerve. Is there anything I can do without going to a doctor?

You might try ..: .... an over-the-counter wrist splint. I concur with your diagnosis that some nerve compression is going on, and it may be at the elbow, but even stabilizing the ulnar nerve (suppliers of the 4th and 5th digits) at the wrist could help. Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen/naproxen could reduce swelling if this is part of the problem. If it goes on a week or more, you should contact your doctor ...Read more

High cervical neck and lower back pain worse the last week.Numbness in left pinky and ring fingers also donw leg can this cause nausea hurts to look?

Probably unrelated: Chances are, your neck and low back pains are probably unrelated. Numbness in the left pinky/ring fingers could be due to an ulnar nerve impingement vs a c7/c8 radiculopathy. Numbness down the leg could be caused by a pinched lumbar nerve root. Severe pain of any type can cause nausea. I would recommend further evaluation with a physician. ...Read more
