A few days ago I notices a tingling numbness in my pinky and half of my ring finger on my left hand, extending to the wrist. I was freaked out. I went to web MD and it says it could be a minor thing.. or maybe MS. nice. A few days later I found this: http://www.carpaltunnels.com/cts/cubitaltunnel.html It describes my condition perfectly. It probably happened while I was in a marathon Space Empires IV game, or it could have been sleeping later that night with my arm bent up under my head, or maybe just laying on the floor before the TV resting my head on my hand/elbow. Regardless, the compresion/flexing of my elbow has irritated the nerve and now my hand will be numb until the nerve has a chance to heal. I am not supposed to bend my elbow more than 30 degrees. That means my arm hangs at my side most of the day. (I am getting good at one-handed typing) Now my fingers are all swolen from the fluids running into my hand. Try eating a burger with one hand sometime - messy! My big fat numb fingers. This sux. I wish it would hurry and heal. I thought I'd share my experience here to see if anyone else has experienced it or as help to anyone else with a numb pinky. If you do, don't freak - read the link.
