Numbness in fingers

I have been experiencing numbness in left hand small and ring finger when I bend my elbow like while talking on a mobile phone. The numbness and tingling goes away after sometime when I flex my hand. The same does not happen on right hand. Sometimes I awake with numb fingers after a good night sleep in the morning. I exercise in gym regularly. Is there any stretch exercises to cure it or do I need to visit a doctor? A physician or orthopaedic or physiotherapist?
