Hello. Your tingly in fingers is probably a vascular problem, is not a nerve problem.Tingly is a very common symptom of vascular arterial constriction .
Raynaud and Diabetes can cause arterial constriction.
Nifedipine is a drug widely used for the treatment of arterial constriction.
Please consult your local doctor for a prescription.
I wish you good health.
