numbness in pinky and ring finger

i have been having alot of numbness for about 2 months now in my ring and pinky finger and sometimes inside of my arm up to my elbow at first it was really mild,but has now become really annoying.I am a musician and it has become really hard for me to get through shows,any ideas on what this could be?

Re: numbness in pinky and ring finger

Probably there is an impingement of your ulnar nerve. That can be caused by several reasons, so you should start with having a neurologist consultation. I have ulnar nerve damage due to cervical compression in my spinal cord, but it will take some diagnostic tests to determine the cause for you. I am a musician also, and I understand your concern. I have regained a lot of my function in my fingers after surgery and physical therapy. I still have some tingling and numbness though.
