Carpal Tunnel

Syndrome can be a culprit as can pinching of the ulnar nerve at your elbow. In Carpal Tunnel Symdrome typically your Thumb, Index, middle and ring finger are numb, In ulnar nerve entrapment your pinky and ring finger are numb.

Neck arthritis?

Extremity-upper-hand
You may be suffering from some nerve compression of the nerves going to your hands by some arthritic changes in your neck vertebrae. Please see your doctor for an exam. It could also be from carpel tunnel, but that is often painful too.

What does it mean when a migraine causes pain in the jaw and numbness in the fingers and toes?

Good question

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Really good question but I can't see any relationship with migraines and toe numbness. Have you had an MRI or scan? You should discuss with your dr.

What does it mean if every once in awhile your fingers tingles and goes numb?

Carpal tunnel

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
Most frequent is carpal tunnel where nerve is temporarily pinched at the wrist, but you can hit your "funny bone", and cause tingling and numbness due to the ulnar nerve at elbow. Monitor activity, and see if problems come from computer activities or leaning on elbow. If persistent symptoms, see your doc.

What does it mean if I hold something with my hands my fingers and hands start to go numb. Sometimes my hands move like twitch on there own?

Possible CT Syndrome

Extremity-upper-fingers
If symptoms are confined to hands and fingers then carpal tunnel syndrome ( pinched nerve at wrist) is likely. Twitching seems a separate issue. See a neurologist.

Pinched nerves

Numbness in the fingers can be caused by compression of nerves either in the hand or even in the neck. When associated with dizziness can also be a circulatory problem therefore evaluation is needed
