Tingling Fingers Overview

A tingling feeling in the fingers refers to that kind of burning sensation, half-numbness, sometimes called "pins-and-needles"; its medical term is paresthesias. Tingling sensations are usually related to some kind of nerve problem, or some damage to the nerves due to blood circulation issues, chemical toxins, or other problems. A number of reasonably harmless conditions can cause tingling fingers. However, there are also some serious medical conditions that can cause tingling fingers (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, multiple sclerosis). It is important to also consider more general discussion under finger pain for additional causes.
