My neck has been in pain for over a month & now my right pinky & ring finger have gone numb. Is this serious?

Neuromuscular : It is possible the neck pain and the right ring and pinky numbness are related. A disc, ligament or vertebral bone problem can narrow the nerve exit and cause irritation on the nerves to your hand (c8-t1). However, when this occurs numbness in the forearm occurs. Another possibility is ulnar nerve problem at the wrist or at the elbow and coincidental neck pain. Check with your doctor for DX & tx. ...Read more

Cracking my neck makes electric jolt in pinky, ring finger + middle finger?

Neck Crack Jolt: When you are cracking your neck, are you extending it back or turning it to the side- the side corresponding to the involved hand? Could be structures in your neck like bone spurs or the facet joints are hitting the lower nerves- C6, C7, and C8 nerve roots.

Jammed pinky & ring finger 5 days ago. Swelling has gone down a lot but more painful now. can bend ok but pinky is stiff and I can't make tight fist?

Possible fracture: I am concerned that there could be a fracture of one of the bones. Jamming your finger can cause a chip fracture, or damage to a tendon or ligament. An xray would be needed to figure out the cause or your ongoing symptoms. ...Read more

During/after physical therapy for my wrist my pinky/ring finger started shaking. what could be the reason?

During/after physical therapy for my wrist my pinky/ring finger started shaking. what could be the reason?

The ulnar nerve: passes through a tight canal at the wrist. Movement of the wrist, particularly an injured wrist can result in inflammation around the ulnar nerve causing some compression, or the nerve itself can become irritated or inflamed. Irritation or inflammation of the ulnar nerve or surrounding tissues at the wrist or elbow can result in numbness, tingly, and/or trembling of the pinky finger. ...Read more

I had an acdf c6-c7 with allograft last June. I have intermittent numbness to b/l pinky/ring finger and r arm pain  for the last 10 days...related?

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

Within 5 mins of arms being bent my arm, pinky & ring finger go numb and painful. Every day, night. Left wrist goes weak and drop things. What is this?

Cubital tunnel?: Compression of the ulnar nerve (the "funny bone" at the elbow) can cause symptoms like this. Bending the elbow stretches the nerve...and if there is compression to begin with, this "elbow flexion test" can often reproduce the symptoms you describe. See your doctor or a hand surgeon for a real diagnosis. ...Read more
