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. ...Read more

My pinky finger of the left hand has had a numb, tingling sensation to it for almost a month and a half now. Should I be concerned?

Obvious question 1st: Seen a doctor about this problem? Did it start out being exactly as involved as it is right now or did it seem to come on more insidiously (meaning little by little?). Do you wear anything tight on that finger like a ring or anything else? Any trauma in the past couple of months to the fingers, hand, wrist, or elbow on the left? Yes, I'd want to find out about this problem and fix if possible. ...Read more

Cubical tunnel or...: Most commonly an ulnar nerve compression at the elbow, or less likely a nerve root being pinched at the neck. Avoid sleeping with you arm bent under your head at night. Try a light ace wrap around you elbow to keep the arm straight while you sleep. If that doesn't better see you doc for a nerve conduction or ekg study. Lots of more invasive treatment options. ...Read more
