2 left fingers in left hand , continuous ,no pain , no slurred speach ... nothing else - no meds

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, such numbness and tingling sensation in two left fingers can be caused due to nerve compression in its path while supplying to the affected sites.

It can be compressed either in cervical spine or wrist.

So I would advise you some self-care remedies initially you can try.

You should soak your fingers in warm water for 10 minutes twice a day and do some fingers stretching and wrist stretching.

Do gentle massage with topical diclofenac sodium ointment later and wear wrist splint.

You should do neck stretching also.

You should take OTC Advil.

It's good to keep your arm straight while lying down and sitting position.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

I thought its heart and or circulation related...

Thank you for replying back.

No, this is not related to your heart or cardiovascular disease if you don't have any illness like Diabetes, Hypertension.

Still, I would advise you to monitor your blood pressure, pulse rate for a safe side.

If you don't have chest tightness, shortness of breath, heaviness in chest, sweating, heart palpitation then chances of cardiovascular disease are very slim.

I would advise you to take such self-care remedies as mentioned earlier.

And if your symptoms are getting worse then either a visit to an emergency room or your doctor's office can be helpful.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
