You have been having terrible pain on your left hand and more on the ring finger the finger next to the index finger could some one help?
pinched nerves perhaps in the neck or just below
No, the index finger is the first finger while the ring finger is the third, although some people do wear rings on it as well as the ring finger. Answer: The index finger is the "pointer" finger, the one next to your thumb. The "ring" finger is two over, next to your pinky. Of course, you can wear a ring on whichever finger it fits on.
