    any doctors in the house?

    I will start by saying I will go and see my own doctor about this however as it is not (IMO) urgent it may take upto 2 weeks to get an appointment.

    I have got tingling (like pins and needles) in the base of my right index finger and middle finger. It is worse in the evening and is not relieved by stretching the arm or wiggling the fingers (unlike normal pins and needles). I've had this for several days.

    Any Ideas? Oh and if you do think it is urgent please let me know and I will get an emergency appointment (but at the moment it is more irritating than anything else)

    Sounds like pinched nerves. I don't think it's urgent, but you might want to have it looked at during your next check up.

    Could it be Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    You should see your GP even though it sounds like a pinched nerve it might not be and you should get it looked into
    When I started getting quite bad pins and needles in my arms and legs it turned out to be B12 deficiency, I had some injections to start with and now just take a daily supplement

    I agree with the pinched nerve. I had a pinched nerve at the base of my neck that caused a weird sensation down to my hand and fingers. It was worse in the evenings, I'm sure because of normal daily activities. I went with massage therapy and after three months it went away completely. Definitely check with your doctor, but if they think it's a nerve don't discount a massage. Most doctors won't suggest it and would rather fill you up with pills.
