In brief: Ulnar nerve

The little and ring finger are innervated by the ulnar nerve.
Tingling can be caused by compression in the wrist elbow or neck. You need to be seen by a hand surgeon to determine the cause of your symptoms.

In brief: Cubital tunnel syn

The ulnar nerve at the elbow is a very common cause for ring and small finger numbness.
This is called cubital tunnel syndrome. Try sleeping with your arm more straight and not resting your elbowing things.
