Numbness in pinky and ring finger

Answer

There are a variety of potential causes ranging from diabetic neuropathy if you have diabetes to carpal tunnel syndrome to multiple sclerosis to rheumatoid arthritis... and the list goes on. If this is a consistent symptom you are dealing with, I recommend contacting your doctor for an evaluation to determine the cause and appropriate treatment if warranted.
