Welcome to e health forum.

The description of your symptoms is not helpful to make a proper medical diagnosis.

Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur anywhere in your body, but are often felt in your fingers, hands, feet, arms, or legs.

The most common cause of such symptoms can be due to the following -

1. Abnormal body positions during sleep, work or resting.
2. Vascular disorders - affecting the blood supply, like Transient ischemic attacks, Strokes, Raynaud's syndrome, etc.
3. Neurological injury - due to trauma, low back injury, pressure on nerves (herniation of spinal discs), etc.
4. Peripheral neuropathy - associated with Vitamin B12 or folic acid deficiency
5. electrolyte imbalances
6. Thyroid disorders
7. Diabetic neuropathy, migraines
8. Hyperventilation disorders , panic attacks
9. Repetitive stress injuries - Carpal tunnel syndrome, pressure neuropathy.

Hence for proper diagnosis of your condition, additional medical history as well as few tests may be helpful. Hence you might consult your doctor for proper advice.
