Thanks for posting your query.
The tingling and numbness in the fingers that you have are likely to be related to a benign cause like electrolyte imbalances, thyroid hormone disturbances, diabetes, etc. This could also be related to fibromyalgia that you are having. You can start taking methylcobalamin supplements for two weeks and see if there is an improvement.
In case the symptoms are persistent then do consider visiting your physician for a few blood tests.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
