Is it Ulnar nerve or

Correct me if I'm wrong on spelling of Ulnar.
I've had a specialist refer me to get some electrical conduction test to determine if the pain and disfunction of my hand is coming from the ulnar nerve or the carpal or my neck...He has already xrayed my thumb and deduced a basal joint cartilage disintegration. So in my opinion that's where the pain is coming from. But I get numbness and tingling in my 4th &5th fingers at night. He knows I have a bone on bone situation going on in my cervical spine at 6,7 & that I had major spine surgery last summer as spinal cord was compressed along with 3,4,5,& a fusion was performed. So what do you think? Anyone Have Similar problems?

At what location was the spinal fusion? I think chances are very good that the numbness is coming from spinal nerve compression. If the 4th and little finger are numb, it is likely a compression of the C8 spinal nerve.

An issue in the thumb would not affect the other fingers.
