why does the human elbow and baby finger go numb after hitting elbow ?

In: Biology

It hits the ‘funny bone’ which is actually a nerve under/in the elbow which is connected to your pinky and ring finger.

The ulnar nerve runs from your elbow to your pinky finger and it helps you grip things and sensitively touch things with your finger tips. It happens to be a little bit less protected than some other nerves, so when you bang your elbow you’re actually causing it to compress a little bit, which deadens the nerve for a little while. Tingly.
