Customer Question

Hello, I've got tingly fingers (little finger and ring finger). It has appeared all of a sudden and doesn't seem to go away. It lasts for 20 mins already. I never had this before and am wondering if I need to see a doctor?
JA: What are all your symptoms? Are you taking any medication?
Customer: Only the tingly fingers I take antidepressants
JA: Got it. Have you used anything besides the antidepressant for this?
Customer: No, I didn't take anything for it Just my meds in the morning
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Sometimes I have tingly feet etc. as well and I always wonder why it appears so randomly...
