Tingly Pinky Finger
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?).

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.

Lots of more invasive treatment options. ...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
