Tingling head can be non-specific related to stress, anxiety or other neurologic issues underlying.

The hand tingling can be from nerve compression at carpel tunnel, cervical root region in the nape of the neck or other systemic illness as diabetes or so.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
