Nerve compression: Sounds like your ulnar nerve may be compressed at your wrist. This can be caused by certain repetitive movements like prolonged computer use, texting, video games and others. Try wrist splints at night, but if stays numb all the time and not better with use of the wrist splints, need to see an orthopedist, preferably one who works lots with hands and/or things like carpal tunnel problems. ...Read more

Ulne nerve issue: Your symptoms are fairly consistent with ulnar nerve entrapment. It is usually caused by repeated pressure of elbow along the 'funny bone' area where the nerve travels along before it reaches the 4th and 5th fingers. Try wearing a elbow pad with a sleeve especially during sleep to see if it helps. If symptoms get worse, then consult your doctor for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

I don't know what you want? I have pain, numbness, tingling in my right hand - mostly in middle finger, ring finger, and pinky.

Ulnar neuropathy: Your symptoms sound suspicious for ulnar neuropathy...a pinched nerve, typically at the elbow. When you hit your funny bone, you're actually hitting this nerve. It's caused by leaning too much on the elbow or repetitive movement of the elbow. Don't lean on the edge of a table and don't sleep with your arms curled up tightly under your head. Only when severe, surgery may be needed to decompress. ...Read more
