can I piggyback on your post?
I did a similar thing - amazingly while playing with a razor sharp paring knife with a small curved blade that tapers down to a needle like tip.
This I jabbed into the spot at the base of the pinky where it joins the palm.
I had a very small external gash -maybe less than an eighth of an inch but it felt at the time that I had actually hit the bone (the pain of the nerve being hit made it hard to judge but we are practically talking about a surgeon's knife -a sabatier)
Anyway the numbness was instantaneous down the inside of the pinky all the way to the tip.
I do get some feeling even there along with background tingling and I also get those electric shocks when I move or stretch the pinky the wrong way.(I am glad that this is ,as I hoped, a good sign.
Just wondering what kind of damage I might have done as I can't seem to find any good high definition anatomical diagrams on the internet.
Am I talking about a sheath with thousands or hundreds of tiny filaments that I would have punctured but possibly not have severed completely?
