Tingling sensation in my left pinky.
I'm 30, and for whatever reason I have begun over the past two weeks to get a pretty bad tingling feeling from the tip of my left pinky finger all the way to my elbow, I don't have any suspisions as to why.  I know I like to pop my neck like most people and sometimes it feels wierd, and I sometimes sleep wrong, but can this be something more than me just being paraniod.

I tend to get up at 3:30 and work on boats, then go to a construction job from 7:30 to 6:30, but I still get relatively good sleep at night, I just want to know if it could be a symtom of something serious.....

Thank you for this opportunity.....

Hi, probably it is ulnar nerve entrapment. Neuropathy of ulnar nerve leads to these kinds of symptoms as this nerve supplies little finger. Treatment involves pain killers, cold compression etc.

“Conservative treatment of ulnar nerve compression is most successful when paraesthesias are transient and caused by malposition of the elbow or blunt trauma. Patient education and insight are important. Resting on  elbows at work, using elbows to lift the body from bed, and resting elbows on car windows while driving all are causes of paraesthesia that can be corrected without surgical treatment. Patient education, anterior elbow extension splinting (if necessary), and correction of ergonomics at work should correct these transient palsies.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications also are useful adjuncts to relieve nerve irritation. Oral vitamin B-6 supplements may be helpful for mild symptoms. This treatment should be carried out for 6-12 weeks, depending on patient response. Surgical intervention is indicated if increasing paresthesiae occurs despite adequate conservative treatment and at the first sign of motor changes”.
