Slight numbness in index finger - cause for concern?

Hi, I'm a 23 year old IT Professional (Use the keyboard a lot). I'm in good shape and work out quite a bit.

A couple of days back, I noticed a funny feeling in my right index finger when I rubbed it. It was a tingling sensation like I'd hit the proverbial funny bone, only on my finger, and soon I started noticing a little numbness on one side of that finger. I can feel everything fine using the finger, just not as well as the other one.

Is this a cause for concern and should anything be done about this?
thank you

If it helps, i can almost "feel the nerve getting displaced" when I massage the finger, leading to the familiar tingling feeling.
