could be nerve or vessel compression

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This tingling and numbness of the fingers could be either due to cervical nerve compression or a vascular compression at the thoracic outlet.

You need to show to an surgeon or an orthopedic for a clinical evaluation and subsequent ct or mri scan may also be advised.

Hope i have been helpful.
