Can cervical neck pain and lower back pain symptoms along with numbness in ring and pinky finger on left hand, be an underlying symtom of something?

Cubital tunnel: Entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow (funny bone) is common. Usually aggravated with bending of elbow: while sleeping, working at desk, driving a car, all of which we tend to flex the elbow and create increased tension on the ulnar nerve. Try sleeping with straight arms, avoid postures that flex the arms during the day. You're awfully young for neck probs, but possible. ...Read more

Consider these:: The numbness anatomy suggests ulnar distribution or c8-t-1, nerve compression in the neck, but this could also be seen in thoracic outlet syndrome. Have you had some recent trauma? Testing can reveal the diagnosis. Doubt the stomach issues relate to the arm and shoulder problem. ...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

Possibly not: If it just started 10 days ago, likely not from the C6-7 level given the distribution of symptoms too. Your surgery was about 1 year ago. So it is likely your new symptoms is coming from the level below your prior surgery, or from your ulnar nerve most likely from your elbow. Go see s spinal specialist for advice. ...Read more

Numbness on right hand just on mi pinky sometimes on ring finger what could this be?

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

Elbow clicks when bent, been 2 years. Numbness in pinky and ring finger, gone when no physical activity for a few weeks. Maybe ulnar nerve?

Elbow clicks when bent, been 2 years. Numbness in pinky and ring finger, gone when no physical activity for a few weeks. Maybe ulnar nerve?

Probably ulnar nerve: The numbness is almost certainly coming from the ulnar nerve. The clicking may be coming from the nerve flipping in and out of its groove. However, if the clicking is not coming from the inner side of the elbow, it is something else. At age 20, I would not ignore the numbness. ...Read more
