Have you noticed that your pinkie gets numb every time you lay down? If so, you may need to make an appointment with an orthopaedic doctor to treat your discomfort and restore feeling in your finger.
Watch this video to find out more about this puzzling symptom. Often, numbness in the pinkie is caused by compression of the ulnar nerve, which runs through the elbow. After a few weeks of trying to avoid laying on your elbow and treating the numbness with over-the-counter medicine, see an orthopaedic doctor if symptoms persist.
