tingling/numb fingers

What would cause red swollen numb tingling fingertips? I have been smoking cigarettes off and on for the past 7 years.  Lately, I have started smoking again for the past 5 months.  Two days ago, after each cigarette, my fingers begin tingling and burning/itching, and then the fingertips begin becoming numb.  Finally, they become slightly swollen and very taut.  I was wondering if I have developed an allegy to cigarettes.  My symptoms only occur after I smoke and last for about an hour and then go away until I smoke again.  I have since quit smoking, but I am still concerned.  I hope that this is only an allergy and not a symptom of something worse.
