Thank you for posting your query.

Isolated numbness of the hand fingers may be due to a peripheral nerve problem of the hand, usually caused by the mechanical compression of the hand nerve, such as while sleeping.

As of now, it does not look like stroke. However, if the numbness spreads to involve forearm, arm and face, it could suggest a new stroke.
