Right Pinky Finger Slightly Numb Could It Be From Using Mouse On Computer?

Answer

You could have something called ulnar nerve entrapment which causes numbness in the last two fingersof the hand. It is caused by compression of the ulnar nerve that runs along the inside of the elbow. You should be careful to have a good posture at the computer. With ulnar nerve entrapment its particularly important that your seat is not too low. Also do not risk your elbow on an armrest. You can find many pictures of good ergonomic positioning for the computer on the web. Good luck!
