Lately I have been experiencing numbness in my left pinky and ring fingers, but only in certain situations. Mostly when I lift my arm above my head on when I am working out.
I am currently being looked at for possible MS, but this numbness feels different from the numbness I get with the possible MS attacks, and I have not had any attacks in a few months since my last episode. Also, since this is not a permanent numbness but more of a situational numbness, and that it is on the side of my body not affected by my brain lesion, it leads me to beleive this is unrelated.
A few years ago I hurt my neck badly when I dove into the shallow end of a pool, and it has never felt the same since. Could this be related to that? I will eventually see a doctor, but I'm wondering if I should let my Neurologist know about this or not.

Yes, let your neurologist know what is going on!
