What is causing my fingers to be numb and tingly?

Ive been experiencing a tingling sensation very much like the one you get when your foot falls asleep.I've had these feelings on both my arms and hands but it would just come and go. But for the past 2 weeks the fingers on my left the index middle and ring finger have been tingly numb even cold at times. I still feel...but only pressure and pain. Im able to move them as well. Im worried was hoping it will go away. I don't wanna ignore it and it get worse?  Should I go to the doctors?

Thank you for your query and I am sorry to hear that you are currently experiencing  these symptoms.

Intermittent numbness in both arms and hands can be caused by a few conditions. These can be anywhere in the course of the nerves traveling from the brain, to the spinal cord, to the major nerves and then to the smaller nerves in the hand. I would advise you to seek a medical professional for a full history and examination to exclude important causes. Once these have been excluded, you can then be referred to a specialist to be worked up for the rest of the conditions like cervical spondylosis (wear and tear of the neck spine which can result in compression of nerves) or other nerve compression syndromes like carpal tunnel syndrome. Please take care.
