fingertip numbness

I am a 37 year old male in good health. On Sunday, I was sitting in a recliner and felt  a couple of my fingers start to tingle followed by a dull feeling. Now my fingertips are numb and seem to worsen after sleep or driving. This is on my left hand. I also have numbness on 2 of my right fingertips. I have no motor deficits whatsoever. I did wake up Saturday morning with a nagging backache and shoulder pain. I have a little pain in my wrists. I have recently started playing some basketball for exercise and I have been trying to learn piano. I have no neck pain now but I have had some severe neck pain in the past. Not sure if have aggravated something in my neck. I am a firefighter so I do wear an airpack that stresses my shoulders and neck. I have seen my GP with no insight and I am going to the neuro May 19th if this continues. Of course I now feel numbness on the LT side of my face, but I think that is myself doing a psych job in fear something is bad wrong...

Any input or suggestions?

Thanks,

John
