1 doctor weighed in:

I have had numbness in my left pinkie, ring finger and up to my elbow since yesterday afternoon. What could be wrong?

In brief: Could be

Cubital tunnel syndrome which involves pinching of ulnar nerve at elbow.
This may be very temporary based on your description, but if persistent, see your doc. Most of these problems involve bumping or sleeping on "funny bone", and are rapidly reversible.
