Re: numbness in left pinky and ring finger

I have ulnar nerve compression and it affects the ring and little fingers with similar symptoms. I can't say for sure this is what you have but I would see a doctor or a hand surgeon to be examined. Hope this helped

Re: numbness in left pinky and ring finger

I had a similar problem and two doctors told me I had carpal tunnel. After two months and many test I went to a third doctor and found out the problem was in my shoulder. If you are a right handed welder and the problem is on your left hand, you may be putting too much pressure on your support arm and neck. The nerves come out of your spine and run through cavities down to your wrist. Muscles support these nerves. When they get fatigued, the nerve touches the passage. Change your work stance. Work at toning the neck, shoulders and arm muscles.

Re: numbness in left pinky and ring finger

i had the same thing happen to me a few months ago, it was due to an ulnar nerve untrapment in my elbow. they went in and done the surgery on the the 10th of this month. i can feel my ring pinky finger again. but now i can feel my elbow so im gonna have to see whats going on there. but you should most definately get it checked out.
