In brief: Carpal Tunnel Syn

Nocturnal numbness ;paresthesia associated with burning pain is fairly typical of nerve compressions like carpal tunnel with or without associated nerve compression in the neck.
Your pcp will refer you to a neurologist for emg/nct to confirm/exclude the dignoses ; you will then likely be referred to a hand surgeon.In interim, start using hand brace and nsaids.Md may inject steroid or Gabapentin tab.
