Thank you for posting your query.

The most common cause of numbness and tingling of fingertips is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). In this condition, median nerve of hand gets compressed at the level of wrists.

This can be confirmed by a test nerve conduction studies.

For initial treatment, you can take pregabalin or gabapentin capsules.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.
