In brief: Carpal tunnel?

Most commonly, acquired carpal tunnel syndrome associated with computer keyboarding can be experienced.
Also, leaning on the elbows frequently, can cause ulnar nerve compression. Since numbness over the fingertips bilaterally may be a sign of a vitamin deficiency or diabetes, best to have your physician check this out if it persists.
