Any Medically inclined people?

I have been suffering pins and needles constantly in my little finger lately.
There is no arthritis in the family, and it seems so insignificant to bother the doctor with.

If it is just on one side, and if the finger next to it is effected as well, it could be ulnar nerve syndrome. The ulnar nerve is the "funny bone" nerve, the vulnerable one that hurts so much if you hit a certain spot around your elbow. The ulnar nerve gets pressure on it when you bend your elbow. (It's kind of like the elbow equivalent of carpal tunnel syndrome.)

You don't spend time with your elbows bent at a computer, do you?shocked_yellow

Carpal Tunnel syndrom would also account for it. I'd go, Dot, and get it checked out - at worst, the doctor will tell you it's naught to worry about, but at least then you'll know?

Take care! :)
