    I assume you mean fingers. Abnormal sensations such as these are known as paresthesia and are reported by women undergoing menopause. Since HRT increases the levels of female hormones that dip in menopause, it is plausible that these symptoms will arise. You should speak to your doctor because these symptoms could also be related to other causes that need to be diagnosed and treated accordingly. There is no way of saying for sure that the symptoms you are experiencing can definitely be attributed to menopause or discontinuing HRT. Your doctor’s input is therefore important at this time.
