It sounds like your ulnar nerve is being affected, which shows up in the pinky and ring finger. Either you are laying on your arms and compressing it, or perhaps there is something going on in your cervical spine. I have that symptom in my right hand due to cervical spine compression which had to be surgically stabilized. The ulnar nerve can get trapped in your elbow also.

I agree. I have the same issue, I had the ulnar nerve sheath cut open to release pressure and it helped but the numbness is still there because i have issues with my c5-c6 area of my c-spine.

You can get a emg test and they can pin point which nerve is being bothered
My left pinky and ring finger are numb, as are the right and left toe next to the big toe, with burning under and on top of feet. Left arm aches constantley at a moderate pain level until I am reast, then feels aching sorness on inside and back of arm. I have to type with one hand because the left pinky finger will fall hit the control key. Does this sound like nueropathy? Whom do you see a nuerologist? I have parkinsons and am told that is not what is affecting me in the above manor by a nuerologist.

Thank You.

have you ever had that neuro actually refer you for a good full spinal MRI with real emphasis on that higher up c spine area? this would, as with the other poster here just be the best possible place to really start to look for possible issues that could easily be impacting anything that is just below the c spine level if the spinal cord is involved in some way? everything that is just below a level of real spinal cord impact can just create really insane feelings and symptoms from right directly beneath it on down to your toes depending. it just really NEEDS to be fully looked into with your particular symptoms you are displaying. if the neuro mentioned that this is NOT part of your parkinsons, what does HE seem to think this is stemming from then? did he give you ANY resonable explanations?

if ANY doc, espescially any specialist cannot actually give you real/solid explanations/reasons for any symptoms like these are, they OWE you some better more in depth types of testing to find out what is causing this in any patient. i would really push him for an MRI just to see the more likely area of the possible problem which in this case with these symptoms just very easily could be some level of real affectation of your spinal cord somewhere. there are just sooo many different possible things that can seriously impact anyones spinal cord. if this particular doc rewfuses to even do this one test for you, i would seriously consider possibly changing neuros? or asking your primary doc to refer you could work too. but this area really just does need looking into. it would rule it in or out as a possible area of involvement. i do wish you luck in finding the answers. please let us know what you find out.
