I've heard a lot about the danger of tingling feet and diabetes. I have a bad case of tingling fingers and hands. Any thoughts on this?

Thank you for your reply. Yes I visited my Endocrinologist today he will test me for Carpal Tunnel if they are still tingling at my follow-up visit next month.

It could be neuropathy but carpal tunnel syndrome is another possibility. Do you constantly do repetitive work such as typing with your hands ? Are all of your fingers numb or just the thumb and the fingers nearest to the thumb (not the little finger)? If so, it may be carpal tunnel syndrome. Only your doctor can make an accurate diagnosis so it may be time for a visit. Good Luck.

The ulnar tendon can be affected by repetitive motions as well. It causes the other three fringers to go numb. Hope you get some answers from your Dr. this afternoon.

Well stated, I agree with (kdroberts) 100%!
Talk to your doctor about this, a medical evaluation is necessary to determine the actual cause of the tinging sensation.

Fingers and hands are just the same as toes and feet. Although many things can cause tingling fingers, it could be neuropathy. You should talk to a doctor very soon.
