In brief: Numbness

To know for sure, you need an examination.
Differential diagnosis could be c8 cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in neck), brachial plexopathy, peripheral nerve entrapment such as ulnar neuropathy, or even myofascial pain with trigger points. Would suggest a pm&r evaluation for definitive diagnosis and treatment.
