In brief: Finger numbness

Numbness in the fingers as it relates to the neck usually causes compression of the spinal cord or cervical myelopathy.
Numbness without spinal cord compression may indicate an impingement of the ulnar nerve at the elbow (cubital tunnel syndrome) or impingement of the median nerve at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome). An EMG of the upper extremities will establish the cause of the numbness.
