Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms can be caused by spine disease (like cervical spine disc herniation), brachial plexus abnormalities, cubital tunnel syndrome, Guyon's canal syndrome. All this disease result with ulnar nerve compression and give little finger numbness. The exact reason can be found by neurologist who should perform physical examination of the nerves and spine. EMG (electromyography) and spine MRI might be necessary.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
