In brief: Varies

The most common thought of condition that can cause tingling in the fingers is carpal tunnel syndrome.
However, there are many potential causes including cervical disc bulge, thoracic outlet syndrome (cervicobrachial syndrome) or peripheral nerve entrapments. Most of these can be treated conservatively with myofascial release, spinal and extremity manipulation, acupuncture, traction and rehab.

In brief: Tingling fingers

The most common cause of numbness and tingling involving the index and middle finger is carpal tunnel syndrome in which the main nerve (median) going to the hand has too much pressure on it as it goes through the wrist.
This condition usually affects the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and 1/2 of the ring finger. The condition can be treated with cortisone injection, wrist splint, or surgery.
