Been experiencing stiff fingers, numb and prickly tongue. Cause?

I have been experiencing my fingers going to sleep and becoming stiff when I sleep at night. Last night my whole hand felt numb and my tongue felt prickly. This has been occuring at a greater extent for the past few months. It never happened before so I am wondering what has changed and what is causing this? What might be the cause of fingers and or hands and even tongue going numb while sleeping?
