That's the ulnar nerve. Most likely it's being pinched at the elbow. Tight triceps and forearm flexor is a common culprit. Should be 100% curable with stretching.

Doubtful. As the whole arm and neck would also be affected. Is it inside or the top of the fingers? The median nerve deliver inside and radial nerve outside.

Cortisone injections can be helpful (I've had a few), as can physical therapy, but I seriously would suggest an MRI if you haven't had one yet.

Get your serratus anterior and rotator cuff firing correctly. When the humerus elevates in the socket, it's due to poor stabilization during movement.

Scapular push ups
Internal and external humeral rotations
Humeral abductuions (for the supraspinatusk)

Stretch biceps triceps, lats and coraco brachialis.

The cortisone is just a symptom reliever and won't do anything about the real problem, which is poor glenohumeral stabilization.
