your problem is due to over work on computer. During sleep avoid use of pillow. Don't work on laptop or, watch TV in lying down position. Do some neck exercises.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You may be showing signs of Carpal tunnel syndrome. It has many causes. As of now, use your Computer minimally. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink enough water and most important, get enough sleep of 6-8 hours a day. If the sensations are not only in your palm and present even in your arm then the problem lies in your neck nerves for which it is best you visit the Neurologist. Do not bend your head much on the side that the hand pains, try to avoid that side.

do u have associated neck pain.
it can be a cervical (Neck problem)
take an Xray cervical spine AP and lateral view to rule out this problem
pins and needles can come when the nerve in the cervical area gets compressed.
try neck isometric exercises.
hot water foment the neck twice a day.
