Posted , 19 users are following.

Hi just wondering if anyone has this or knows what it could be. I keep getting a sharp extremely bad pain in my left little finger,  took some painkillers but not working. I didn't bang or bend it, it just started a few  days ago but seems to be getting more frequent and sore

    Pinky pain is affected by ulnar nerve subluxation or entrapment. 

    Middle finger is from pinched median nerve.

    Fingers can also get pain if a tendon is inflamed and can’t go through the “pulley” system well or ifctge carpal tunnel is inflammed.

    hello. Is anyone still having problems with this? I have the same issue, shooting pains on the end of my right pinky finger (nail area). Had them now for two weeks and really hurt when they happen. They are like electric shocks. Painkillers don't work but if I'm busy doing something or even lifting weights or any other heavy lifting i don't feel any pain at all.

    Hoping for some answers.
