Ulnar tunnel: Syndrome is probably what you have. That means ulnar nerve is pinched in your elbow or wrist. Take otc Ibuprofen for few days and in the mean time make an appointment to see an orthopedic doctor. I hope this helps.

Tip of my right pinky finger felt like as if there's ants biting. Have been experiencing it for two month. Could it be a symptom of stroke?

Tip of my right pinky finger felt like as if there's ants biting. Have been experiencing it for two month. Could it be a symptom of stroke?

Probably not: Strokes tend to have broader symptoms of one side of the body. If you are concerned, get it checked out, but it is most likeley benign related to the peripheral nerve.

The pinky and ring finger on my left hand are tingly and almost numb. Just started last night. What should I do? I have no other symptoms

Numb fingers: This is usually from pressure on your wrist or elbow. The usual treatment is to keep pressure off these areas. Numbness will usually resolve, but can take several weeks to months. If symptoms last for more than two to three weeks, evaluation should be performed.

Severe neck pain and tingly pinky finger in left hand. No pain in arm. Is this radiculopathy? Had same symptoms right side 2 months ago.

Severe neck pain and tingly pinky finger in left hand. No pain in arm. Is this radiculopathy? Had same symptoms right side 2 months ago.

Maybe: It's possible, but radiculopathy is not something you should try to self-diagnose. You need a thorough history and neurologic exam by an experienced clinician, and, if the doc thinks you need it, C-spine MRI and/or EMG/NCS. I can't tell from your post if this is benign or serious. You should have it checked out.

Little finger numb..: The nerve supply to the little finger can be affected. A circulation issue can also account for numbness. Sometimes a simple bruise or contusion or a swollen finger can also make out feel "numb" or different when looking for nerve compression start at the finger and work your way up tot the neck any compression on any area can cause the finger to fell different. Although we generally use the word "numb" or numbness a true numb finger has no feeling at all. Maybe a better word is tingling to mean only a partial difference in sensation. Even a swollen joint from arthritis or a bruise to the finger can make the tip f a finger feel different. A swollen tendon or a trigger finger can also make the finger feel less normal. A contusion or bruise to the palm can affect the digital nerves that go to the finger. A site of compression can be a the wrist. The ulnar nerve at the wrist more commonly affects the little finger, but some people with carpal tunnel syndrome complain of little finger numbness even though we are not supposed to be "wired" that way. At the elbow the ulnar nerve continues up the arm and the inside of your elbow where you would think of your "funny bone" as residing is a site of compression that can give tingling in the little finger. Hoever usually little finger tingling from the ulnar nerve at the elbow will be accompanied by tingling on the top of the hand on the little finger side too. Finally a compressive site in the neck or at a lower cervical nerve root (the lower part of your neck or cervical spine) can also give tingling as for circulation, there are a variety of systemic and localized conditions that affect circulation in the hand from ryanauds, a spasm of the blood vessels due to cold, to the decreased circulation (and neve issues) of diabetes, to a disorder that is associated with trauma to the palm and interruption of normal hand circulation. Finally there are more severe conditions that can simulate 'numbness" in arm of exretemities that are indirectly related to nerve or circulation issues should one who has little finger numbness need to worry about all these things and more? The answer is yes and no. That's for your health care provider to determine but if the numbness continues your should seek medical attention. From a hand or orthopedic surgeons perspective: a lot of those who have numbness in the little finger have cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a chronic compression of the ulnar nerve (your funny bone) at the elbow in the meantime think about your arm position when you are sitting at the desk or kitchen table and typing, simply sitting and being on a keyboard both your hands rotated on the keys and the inside of your elbow resting on the table or table edge can also give tingling in the little finger! Those who want to know more about cubital tunnel syndrome affecting the ulnar nerve can follow the link provided.

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?

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.

Having symptoms of trigger finger only in the morning when hand seems cold any home remedies or medicine to take to help out finger or do I go yo docs?

Home Remedies: A bit young to be having some morning stiffness and triggering, although trigger fingers can occur at any age. Try to ice your hand down after you get home from work for 10-15 minutes. Take aleve (naproxen) or advil in the evening after dinner. The warm hands up with a heating pad or warm water for 10-15 mins. Before going to bed. If this does not help get it checked out.

"Virginity": There is no way your husband can tell if you have been sexually active in your past. And you will not be able to tell if he has been sexually active either.

Yoga poses caused tingling of hand+ twitching of finger. 3 week of yoga later symptom now less. Did it help or did I kill off the nerve?

Yoga poses caused tingling of hand+ twitching of finger. 3 week of yoga later symptom now less. Did it help or did I kill off the nerve?

Interesting: From your description and history, yoga was not harmful. You did not kill a nerve. Degenerative disc disease in a 26 year old man requires exercise, posture training and review of your lifestyle. Yoga with an instructor that understands your condition would normally be a good thing. Breathing properly during postures can change the pressure on your discs. Inversion postures recommended.

You will b fine: It depends on how much the disc compress the nerve. Moving such turning your neck one way or the other may compress nerve more one way less the other. This should be discussed with your doctor. You don't want to wait too long to get it fixed. Then you will be fine

I: I would not "watch it for a couple of days before seeing the doctor". You are dealing with cellulitis (skin infection caused by bacteria). You need antibiotic treatment right away. The reason is because cellulitis can quickly lead to abscesses, gangrene, and thrombophlebitis (inflammation of superficial veins) and in some cases it can even lead to an infection in your bloodstream (sepsis) which can be life threatening. Some things you can do at home if you are unable to see your doctor right away are vitamin supplements (mainly c, e, and zinc), herb therapy (echinacea, thyme), and even acupuncture. Lastly ice is not a good idea, but a cool towel may be helpful. Avoid heat. Good luck.
