It's probably carpal tunnel syndrome as that's quite common amongst weight lifters. I've been suffering with it on and off for years and the only treatment I've had that improved things was a course of massage therapy aimed at releasing the transverse carpal ligament; basically it's just rubbing quite hard across the ligaments in the base of your wrist in order to free them. Other than that try different hand positions in the exercises that are causing you the most problems and try to keep your wrists as straight as possible when you're doing any pressing movements.
