In brief: Consider diabetes

As a possibility, vitamin deficiency, side effects of medication, many possibilities see your doctor so that some of the differential diagnosis can be eliminated so a diagnosis can be found and you treated.

In brief: Sudden...

If it's sudden, it generally means that there is some nerve impingement going on.
However, this usually doesn't happen in all the fingertips and toes. There are a number of different types of neuropathy that can cause this, but these come on gradually. See a doctor for a workup.
