I injured my ulnar nerve 2 yrs ago from a fall. My pinky & half of my ring finger went numb for 3 weeks. It still hurts and tingles once in awhile. Why?
See details. The ulnar nerve is still irritated, damaged or entrapped. Have the issue elevated if you are concerned. If it is a minor problem, live with it.
I noticed tingling & numbness in my left pinky & ring finger. Seems like my ulnar nerve is the culprit. Last 2 days my hand & arm seem weak, tho.
See Neurologist. Could be a nerve injury. U need evaluated soon so corrective measures can be made before nerve(s) become permanently damaged and lose function. Neurologist is best for this, however often hard to see quickly. So, likely will need an er visit to assess: go during the day, on a weekday, not a holiday, and plan to wait. Tests/consult take time, but are way faster than out-pt. Bigger hospital better. Read more...
