Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Tingling numbness or loss of sensation of a limb can either be due to vascular or neuropathic problem.There is possibility is of a spinal cause . Any spinal cause in the cervical spine may be associated with tingling in the fingers. So to rule out this possibility you need a MRI whole spine done after consulting a neurologist.
You should eat a healthy diet consisting more of meat and non veg products which are sources of vitamin B 12. If you are a vegetarian then you can take vitamin B 12 supplements after consulting your physician.
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.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
