I get numb along the side of my hand from the pinky to the wrist...it can extend to the ring/middle finger...Is this Carpal tunnel syndrome?

2 doctors agree

In brief: No

The distribution of numbness is not consistent with carpal tunnel.
It is more consistent with an ulnar nerve entrapment. Have it evaluated.
