is there ANY difference in sensation at all in the ring finger on that same hand or is this 'just" that pinkie? when you have complete numbness with no clor or temp changes in it,it is usually from some level of direct nerve compression. the ky is to track it back to where it is being affected. that could be from that finger on all the way up to the spinal cord where it starts. i would see your primary doc to have this evaled. they can send you for an MRI of your c spine right away,or send you for what is called an EMG/NCV test? this particular test would be able to tell exactly where that nerve is being compromised from down in your hand/wrist,thru that elbow on up to the beginning at that spinal level too. but seeing your primary to have this evaled right now would get that ball rolling towards finding that area of compromise. this is what i would do if i were experiencing what you are right now. something is most defintiely affecting and compressing upon that ulnar nerve, also called the c 8 nerve up in the c spine area too.

please let me know just what you find out. the most common place for actual compression of this particular nerve is usually right in that crease of the elbow area(your 'funny' bone). are you experiencing ANY neck or upper back pain? marcia
