Maybe I've been pointing too much

YANAD (or maybe you are), but yesterday morning I woke up with the tip of my right index finger feeling numb. It was localised just to this area and appears to have normal bloodflow (i.e. it's not pale or white, so isn't just a digit feeling a bit cold). Fast forward 24 hours and it is still numb, albeit today it is a bit tingly/pins and needles in the area when using that finger. It causes no pain and is more so just annoying as I am right handed and work on a computer all day, so after a day and a half it's a bit irritating. What's going on?

It may be as simple as a pinched nerve caused by an odd sleeping position (somehow), as I have done no other activity that may have triggered this sensation, but the numbness is just on the top of the finger and doesn't extend down past the nailbed. I understand this is a bit of a specific thing to be asking the internet, but thanks in advance for any thoughts/suggestions!
