My doctor says get the tingling in my fingers is to do with pressure on my ulnar nerve and I do find keeping the elbow straight help a bit but i also find raising right arm vertically above my head help which is of course very inconvenient but does that mean my shoulder is part of the problem

The most usual place of problem for the ulnar nerve is where it passes through the cubital tunnel at the outside of the elbow, that's why straightening it helps. A common therapy is to use a soft splint to keep the arm straight when you sleep, and to avoid leaning on the elbow or forearm at any time.
