Numbness in arm, worsens on sleeping, difficulty in moving things. Advice for treatment?

Ive had this numbness in my right arm for a few months, it comes and goes but has been occurring a lot more lately. When I am sleeping it is sometimes worse. It starts mainly at my elbow and goes down to my hand and upper arm. Its a numbness tingling pain, sometimes very hard to move and do things. What do you think it could be and what can I do at home and what should I ask my doctor to do?
