In brief: Possible
Certainly sounds like it could be carpal tunnel syndrome.
See your doctor or a specialist, (neurologist, physiatrist, hand surgeon) to be examined. A nerve conduction test may be necessary.

In brief: Possible
Tingling and weakness bring up the possibility of carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) but the finger joint pain and weakness bring up the possibility of arthritis.
If the predominant feeling is the hand "falling asleep" i would favor a nerve problem and cts is one such diagnosis. If the main problem is joint pain with activity, osteoarthritis is more likely. Joint swelling and stiffness? Think rheumatoid.
