What causes index and third finger numb/tingling on my left hand many mornings on waking.

Not laying on left side possibly arm above head.

The reason you feel numbness and tingling on the index and third fingers on your left hand is probably because of pressure you put on your nerve. You need to check your sleeping position and whether you place your hand under the pillow which can apply pressure on your hand. You may change your sleeping position and check if this gets fixed. If not, ask your doctor about being checked up for disorders such as disk disease or arthritis of the neck, both of which are usually treatable with exercises and drugs.
