In brief: Sleep issue

It is possible that this is simply an issue of the position you sleep in; it is common for people to sleep in the fetal position without being aware of it.
This puts tension on the nerves and can result in numbness. Alternatively you may have nerve compression such as carpal tunnel that is often worse at night.
