Elbow clicks when bent, been 2 years. Numbness in pinky and ring finger, gone when no physical activity for a few weeks. Maybe ulnar nerve?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Probably ulnar nerve

The numbness is almost certainly coming from the ulnar nerve.
The clicking may be coming from the nerve flipping in and out of its groove. However, if the clicking is not coming from the inner side of the elbow, it is something else. At age 20, I would not ignore the numbness.
