Do you think i should be worried about mild, temporary numbness in my fingers?

RELATIVELY BENIGN: Your description seems to suggest periodic symptoms, which may correlate with nerve issues at wrists (carpal tunnel) or maybe at elbows (cubital tunnel). Any relationship to typing or using hands repetitively? Do not worry unless it becomes persistent and you start to lose dexterity, but this can be fixed quite readily..
