    Numbness of pinky & ring finger of left hand/nerve root cyst

    Hi,
    16 months ago I was diagnosed with Sweet's syndrome from a biopsy on my right leg.
    9 months ago I was rear-ended by a drunk, at a soberity checj point. Police witness has him hitting me at 50 mph, never braking until impact.
    Other than being over-weight, I am in good health and have not had in major health issues. My only surgery was to repair a broken left ankle.
    Now I have numbness in my left pinky & ringer fingers of my left hand. The MRI report states, ". . . nerve root sleeve cyst and/or nerve root sleeve ectasia left sided C6-C7 and right sided C7-T1."
    Last night I had an EMG. Testing for nerve and muscle damage.
    I go back in two weeks for results.
    Just wondering what type of cyst this would be? And what can be done to eliminate the numbness in the fingers and hand?
    None of the issues seem to be related.

    It is a little confusing. The pinky numbness is a classic sign of C8 nerve involvement, and the C8 originates at the C7-T1 level. But your symptoms are in your LEFT hand, while it's the RIGHT side of C7-T1 that has the problem.

    Thank for the reply. It is confusing, which is why I thought I would put it out there and see what others thought before I go back to the doctor. The left sided issue is the C6-C7.
