Maybe: That could be one of many possibilities. Difficult to determine without more information. If it persists i would recommend seeing a doctor to look into it.

No: Things happen for a reason. There has to be a mechanism. There’s no enigmatic connection between sleep deprivation & tingly fingers any more than between sleep deprivation & astigmatism or gray hair. “Sleep deprivation” per se isn’t in the differential diagnosis of tingly fingers. You need to see a live doctor who can take a proper history & do an actual physical examination.

Tingling: Deficiencies of calcium or magnesium are possible causes. Other possibilities include peripheral neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, vitamin B12 deficiency or carpal tunnel syndrome. See your physician for evaluation and testing. Referral to a neurologist may be advised.
