In brief: Nerve Entrapment

There is likely an impingement of the ulnar nerve.
This can take place at the wrist, elbow or in the neck. An EMG performed by a neurologist would be helpful in addition to an office examination. One needs to evaluate the type of work they are doing as a possible source of aggravation. Diabetes mellitus and toxic metal exposures are also considerations.
