Part of my left hand (pinky & ring fingers) have been numb for a couple weeks. If it is Hand Nueropathy, how would I treat it?

  • pain in those two fingers can be from cervicle area, or ulnar nerve entrapment. if persistent, see a specialist. Be sure they check neck, elbow ,mri. Maybe emg study or nerve conductio study. Hand surgeon, Physiatrist(physical medicine doc), orthopedic, . Repetitive work or activities may cause this.
