My hands and feet fall asleep often especially my hands if I'm sleep I wake up with a tingling in my hands?

Probably diet. Sounds strange? The brain and nervous system are highly dependent on relatively low calorie intake with sufficient vitamin concenration. Too many calories, particularly simple sugars and sweeteners creates a relative vitamin deficiency. It is, in fact, like "choking" a car engine.

Recently I started to have tingling mainly right arm/hand, thumb seems numb, and my feet fall asleep fairly quick. Muscles twitch a bit. Any ideas?

Pinched nerve. The right arm/hand/thumb numbness/tingling may be caused by a pinched nerve in your neck, which then sends symptoms down the arm. A carpal tunnel syndrome could also cause similar symptoms. The feet falling asleep and the twitching muscles would most likely be unrelated conditions that would require further evaluation.
