C 7 radiculopathy: If you have no carpal tunnel (median nerve compression at the wrist), numbness of the middle finger is from C7 root compression. If there is no weakness in your arm, then it is sensory C7 radiculopathy and not as worrisome as C7 motor radiculopayhy. EMG would help evaluate if C7 root motor fibers are also affected, thus helping with assessing your chance of developing arm weakness in C7 myotomes. ...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

Need to see a doctor: This could be either neck problem or possible carpal tunnel syndrome. You need to see a doctor to get a completely neurological examination. Did you ever had neck injury during sports or motor vehicle accident in the past? If you did, it is possible the numbness related to the neck injury. If you did not it is possible carpal tunnel. I still recommend you to see a doctor to rule out other causes. ...Read more
