Could epilepsy cause a mild constant numbness in my pinky/ ring finger and foot, or is this caused by something else? No muscle weakness.

In brief: Epilepsy

Is a paroxysmal disorder. positive symptoms lasting seconds to minutes may be followed by negative ( postictal ) symptoms ( tingling followed by numbness as an example.
Persistent numbness of the 4th and 5th finger is more likely due to ulnar neuropathy and the base of the hand, or at the elbow or. Pinched nerve in the lower neck (C8-T1) The foot issue similarly may be due to nerve entrapment
