    It might not be related to diabetes or diabetic nueropathy.  

    It might be an issue with a pinched nerve in the wrist, elbow or shoulder.  Depending on your lifestyle and what you do for work or for hobbies and fun - you might have an injury related to repeated motion.  This would have nothing at all to do with diabetes and can happen to anyone.  Numbness in any finger and pain in any area of the hand can be related to injuries caused by repeated motion.  

    Talk to your doctor about the issues and see if you can have tests done to check for pinched nerves.  A simple surgery can usually resolve at least part of the problem.  

    BTW - my diabetic sister has had the issue I am referring to and a surgery relieved the problem.

    No telling what the issue is. Could be an arthritic joint in the finger, could be gout or any number of infections, inflamed bone or tendon tissue or possible trauma to the finger, muscle, tendon in that finger. 

    And very likely that the issue with the finger has no connection to the person's diabetes.
