Pinkie finger and ring finger is tingling I had a little cyst like above that bone on my wrist now it is not as prominent. Could that be it

The: The ulnar nerve which supplies the pinkie and ring finger travels into the hand through a channel called guyon's canal. This is separate from the carpal tunnel. A ganglion cyst that develops near guyon's canal can compress the nerve at the level of the wrist and cause tingling. These cysts form on tendons and are pretty common at the wrist. Sometimes they are removed surgically. Other times they spontaneously pop.
It is more common for the ulnar nerve to be compressed at the elbow (funny bone). ...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
