In brief: Yes
The carpal tunnel is a path on the front of the wrist that both tendon and the medial nerve pass through.
. Too m much tendinitis or synovitis can pack the tunnel and squish on the nerve leading to numbness in the hand.

In brief: Not directly
Tendonitis by itself wouldn't cause numbness or tingling but it can often be associated with carpal tunnel syndrome which is one of the common causes of these symptoms.
