In brief: Ulnar Nerve

When your thumbs point outward from your body, the bones of the forearm open: the ulnar side has the nerve from the elbow (the funny bone sensation).
The roots are in the neck, the fibers forom the c-8 & t-1 exit, and form the nerve on the other sie of the brachial plexus. Stretching anywhere along the nerve causes numbness.

In brief: Nerve problem

Numbness can occur from various reasons.
Some potential causes include vitamin deficiency, nerve damage, nerve compression, alcohol over consumption, side effects of different medications, or as a result of different systemic medical conditions such as diabetes. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the diagnosis. Treatment is based on the diagnosis.
