In brief: Nerve pinch

A stiff neck could be muscular or you might have some arthritis.
Numbness of thumb and next fingers could be from a pinch nerve in your neck or carpal tunnel syndome (nerve pinch of the nerve at the wrist). There are other things but these two are common. Start with simple stretches to your neck and upper back, a beginner yoga class might help. See your doctor if no resolution, physical therapy.
