Well I saw a few posts down about someone exercising and the pinkie gets numb and goes away... well its been a couple days and my pinkie is still numb. Its my left hand.. dont click the mouse w/ it. but anyways. If i take my finger and rub my elbow in a spot my pinkie will tweak (move on its own sorta like a reflex for the nerve). So I dont know if I should go to the doctor.... or just let it be and see if it fixes it self. Are there any massages or anything that I could do that would possibly help?

Most likely the ulnar nerve entrapment. Definately get in to see your physician and or Chiropractor or Physical Therapist. You'll most likely end up going to one of the latter two.

Happy New Year!

Sounds like it's time to consult with a chiropractor.

What's your position at work? I bet you have a desk job, and you keep your left elbow on the desk and your chin in your left palm. If I'm right, you should stop doing that.

I had the same problem, and my doctor (after examening me) told me that I had some nerv damage in the elbow region, and that I should stop leaning on it both at work and in the car . He also told me that many taxidrivers have this problem from driving with the window open and the elbow out.
My treatment was only with vitamins, B6 and another one, and after about o month or so the numbness faded.
Cheers.
