Numbness In My Little Finger
I'm having numbness in my little finger on my left hand. What could it be and I'm also a diabetic?
Ulnar nerve: A numb little finger is usually due to compression of the ulnar nerve. The most common place to compress it is at the elbow, sometimes by sleeping one your back with the elbow bent and the "funny bone" part of the elbow pressing against the bed. Another place to compress is at the wrist--usually by bending the wrist. If you sleep with your elbow bent a lot, there are ways to prevent that. ...Read more

Cubital tunnel: I agree that irritation of the ulnar nerve is a much more common cause of numbess of the small finger. The most likely site of compression is at the elbow but other areas could be involved. Typically the pain is worsened by flexion at the elbow, and sometimes the pain noted more at night, even causing waking. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Numbness in my little left finger and in my hand I get it often when I lie in bed on my side. What does this sound like?
Numbness: In order to recommend treatment you need to establish a correct diagnosis.

There is also a possibility there are two different problems. I suggest you contact your physician for adequate diagnosis and treatment. Hope you get well soon. ...Read more

I feel a numbness in my fourth toe on the side next to the little finger what should I do and should I worry about it?
The tip of my little finger on my left hand feels numb. I thought it will go away but after 3 days still the numbness is there. What is the cause.
Several causes: The tip of the little finger miss incinerated by the lunar nerve. At the elbow the lunar nerve is relatively shallow and exposed to trauma of various kinds. People call this the crazy bone, but injury to the lunar nerve is what happens. Also the small digital artery that supplies it if damaged can cause numbness, but then often the finger tip is blue, white. If it persists over a week see your doc. ...Read more

Ulnar nerve problem: The little finger sensation is carried by the ulnar nerve. This nerve goes behind the bone on the inside of your elbow and can be compressed there. The more you flex your elbow, the more pressure you can be putting on this nerve causing your little finger and pinky side of your ring finger to go numb. Don't lean on your elbow as much, but if it keeps up get it checked out by a hand surgeon. ...Read more
