Is intermittent mild tingling in the tips of my fingers a sign of blood circulation problem?
nerve or circulation, nerve more common in the upper limb
Tingling can be due to problems with either the circulation or nerves that supply area.
If it is related to the nerves it is called neuropathy, this can be temporary or permanent and there are different possible causes including arthritis of the neck which can affect the nerves leaving this area and going into the upper limb.
Issues with the nerves are more common than circulation problems , in the upper limb.
Circulation is more a problem in the legs.
Other causes of neuropathy include- diabetes, liver or kidney disease, thyroid disease, low levels of vitamin b12 or folate
These are only some of the common causes.
An xray of the neck can determine if it is related.
If it worsens or continues then blood tests can also be done as well
There are medications that can help if needed eg amitriptyline, tegretol , lyrica , gabapentin
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
