In brief: Multifactorial

Sometimes it is simply positioning.
If it only happens during certain activities (sitting a certain way) it is probably blood flow or nerve positioning related. If it is happening more and more and becoming progressive it could an early sign of a neurological disease process. See your regular doctor to help delineate this.

In brief: Some nerve etc

Please see my earlier posts, however depending on the circumstances, it most often relates to nerve compression.
Neuropathy from many possible causes, most commonly diabetes, may also result in numbness.
