Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is likely due to the nerve compression at the pinky.

Can be due to the excessive pressure from the shoes.

Other possibilities can be diabetes, thyroid disorder, vitamin B12 deficiency.

Likely nothing serious.

But you should get blood tests for above conditions.

Proper shoes with soft cushion under the pinky, foot exercises should help with recovery.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
