By tingling fingers, if you mean that pins-and-needles sort of feeling you are getting in your fingers, it is usually known as parenthesis. It can be caused by anything from a nerve disease to prolonged pressure on the area. If you have been experiencing this continuously, without any relief, then you must see a doctor, instead of trying to cure it yourself, because it might be nerve damage which could result in your fingers going numb or even permanently losing feelings in your fingers if the case is severe. I will offer some cures you can attempt anyway.

If your fourth and fifth fingers are tingling, then it could be that it is caused by thoracic outlet syndrome, which means the ulnar nerve being under constant pressure by either your chest or elbow area. So you might want to try changing your posture and positions frequently while you're sitting or lying idle.

If it's your main fingers that are tingling, then it is more likely to be carpal tunnel syndrome that is affecting your hand. There are a few exercises to cure this. A few times during the day, you should move your hands into palm up and palm down position frequently, as well as palm sideways as much as you can make it go. This will improve blood circulation in your hand and wrist, and may cure the tingling if carpal tunnel syndrome is what is causing it.

Anyway, you should not worry, and it is better to get it checked. Most likely than not, it won't be as serious as you're probably imagining it to be. Just be sure to get a check-up if it continues to bother you.

A problem such as yours surely wants you to visit to the doctor. Check with with a doctor for an ultimate diagnosis. Cyclic motion syndromes, or increasing trauma disorders, include many different circumstances, such as bursitis or tennis elbow. These are generally caused by cyclic motions, but not all the time. In the majority instances, the symptoms, which have a tendency to be vague, involve pain in the arms and hands; less often are legs and feet affected.

On the other hand, for this problem to be correctly diagnosed, plenty of extra information is needed. Which fingers are affected? How frequently does it happen - daily, weekly? Are you left-handed or right-handed? Do you suffer from arthritis? Does your occupation or leisure activates engage any repetitive motion that might cause your wrist to twist or otherwise be put in an uncomfortable pose? Do you place your elbow on a desk or a car's window for extended periods of time? Can you recognize any activities that seem to be related with this problem? What about your age and sex? And what is Medical history?

With a lot of questions to be answered, you can only receive a methodical appraisal of this problem from your health care provider. Consult him or her as soon as possible.

The human body has a unique way of displaying distress. The distress could be an internal or external infection or disease of even an injury. Nevertheless, this distress manifests in many ways. Some of the common signs noticed include hot flushes, tingling fingers, a pressure point throb or even a headache. Sometimes, these may be nothing more than the body's way of dealing with stress, however any prolonged 'show' of distress should be addressed immediately and not ignored.

Abnormal nerve sensations like tingling of the finger or toe tip muscles or burning or prickling are referred to as paresthesias. Some severe cases of paresthesias are very painful and cause great discomfort. Paresthesias usually result from nerve damage. This may be the result of pressure, entrapment or nerve disorders and continued nerve damage can even lead to limb numbness and a permanent loss of feeling. Any abnormal sensation and form of discomfort should be kept under medical investigation. It is important to diagnose which limb is affected and how severely. The main fingers are usually observed to be affected by conditions similar to the 'carpal tunnel syndrome'. The affected fourth and fifth fingers could be the result of a pressurized ulnar nerve that can be interrupted by pressure on the elbow or the chest area.
