Brief Answer:
You might be having paresthesia

Detailed Answer:
HiXXXXX
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail and understand that you might be experiencing some sort of paresthesia (tingling, numbness, pain) sensations in your fingers during voiding while having urinary tract infection.

Paresthesia can be due to different causes and conditions.
First, it could be due to remaining in the same seated or standing position for a long time. Lack of blood supply to the area, pressure on the spinal nerve due to herniated disc, hypothyroidism, diabetes, vitamins deficiency, side effects of drugs, and others conditions, are all possible causes.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back in case of doubts.
