Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

About two and a half weeks ago my pinky and ring finger went numb resting them on an arm of a chair. Since then it seems it's gotten slightly better but it's still numb and I can't help but to notice that my ring and pinky finger tend to curl into a fist.

I have no problem in movement, no pain or anything. It's just bothering me that the numbness won't go away in the two fingers.

Should I see a doctor for this? Will it eventually heal on it's own? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

If it's been going on for a few weeks, it's probably worth getting it checked out. Meanwhile, it might help to move your wrists and fingers a bit more, (just stretch 'em out, move 'em around) especially when you're working at a desk or computer.
