Re: Numbness in little finger.
Guys, I would not say carpal tunnel at all I would say more likely cubital tunnel caused by compression of the ulnar nerve, this can cause tingling in the little finger, plus to a degree the fourth finger too. I have found myself with this in the past when I have hit back training hard consistently that requires my flexor (forearm) muscles to have been pushed and pushed due to the extra gripping. Frequently the tingling can be due to tight and imbalanced forearms. Even the guy who has been holding equipment, before running down the surgery route, I would assess the imbalance in your forearms. Your job describes someone who grips for a living. I had this really bad such that it felt my ulnar nerve was being compressed even when I wasn't doing anything. I don't have it now... I'm not saying all cases are the same, however don't immediately think there is a sinister reason for your issue. Doctors I'm afraid are not good in these cases, I was told I had carpal tunnel for some hand numbness a few years ago. Actually what I had was nerve compression due to tight muscles in my chest. I saw a sports physio and low and behold with the right stretches, no more problem. Most doctors are not experienced in these areas, in my opinion.
