Brief Answer:
Suggestive of neuropraxia

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and would try my best to help you.

I have noted your symptoms, and they are suggestive of neuropraxia, involving the ulnar nerve.

This would get better on own in a few days. You may take vitamin B12 supplements for faster recovery.

If symptoms do not get better after 5-7 days, investigations such as nerve conduction studies may be done.

I sincerely hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
     
Best wishes,
