In brief: It's possible

Numbness and tingling from carpal tunnel syndrome(cts) usually involves the thumb, index, long and ring fingers.
The symptoms are usually worse at night and with certain activities. Cts is due to compression of the median nerve at the wrist. Ring and small finger symptoms could be ulnar nerve compression at the elbow(cubital tunnel syndrome). Nerve compression in the neck can make all fingers numb.

In brief: Maybe

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one problem that can cause numbness and tingling in the fingers.
Nerve compression at the elbow (cubital tunnel syndrome) can cause similar problems. Nerves can also be pinched at the neck, shoulder, and arm. An electrodiagnostic study (emg/ncs study) can help to differentiate between these different sites of nerve compression and identify the origin of your numbness.

In brief: Numbness and tinglin

These are common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
However, there are other problems that can lead to this such as spinal disease in the neck. I recommend that you get an evaluation by an experienced hand surgeon.
