A couple of nights ago I woke up in the middle of the night and when I got out of bed, I fell straight down because the whole of my left leg was numb. I was still half asleep so didn't care enough to be concerned so I made my way to the toilet as best I could and then went back to bed. In the morning it was fine but i noticed when I had an itch on my leg, when I scratched it it wasn't as sensitive as the other leg. From just under my knee up my thigh is like my leg is partially numb. I can still feel it, and it doens't feel like the numbness you get before pins and needles, but it's like it's desensitised. I also noticed it a tiny bit in my upper left arm, but I hadn't properly noticed it until a friend asked if I was. I also have anxiety so I don't know if I should take the kind of numb arm at face value and not just a "i think i have it so i have it" feeling i get from being a hypochondirac. Is it just a pinched nerve? Is it just anxiety? If it is a pinched nerve how long will it last?
