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

Poss ulnar nerve: You are right this could be due to your ulnar nerve. Since you have weakness you will want to get this checked. A nerve conduction study and treatment may be in your near future. http://www.neurocuro.com/peripheral-nerve-entrapment/ ...Read more

Ice on b?: Without knowing more information I cannot affirm whether your ulnar nerve is damaged. What is the mechanism of injury? How long have you been having the symptom? What makes it better or worse? Also, I am not sure what your question is. What do you mean when you write: "I put ice on b?" Please clarify. Best wishes. ...Read more

Tingling sensaction in middle and ring finger of left hand and tingling reaching almost up to the elbow. Feels like arm going to sleep. Carplal tunel?

Insufficient data: Your symptoms are not typical of either textbook carplal tunnel syndrome or ulnar neuropathy but overlap syndromes are common. Don't trust Doctor Google. See a live physician. Most important is to distinguish WHERE & only then, what: whether it's a problem in the forearm, shoulder or neck.
