My leg has been asleep for 3 weeks

Posted , 2 users are following.

About 3 weeks ago my right leg from the middle of my shin to my toes fell asleep, thought nothing of it at first but it just didn't go away. No tingling or pins and needles. After about 3 and a half days of it, slight feeling came back but only in certain areas (toes, bottom of foot, under side of calf). The ride side of my shin down to the top of my foot are still numb with little feeling 3 weeks later. Can walk on it with alot on concentration, bit of a limp, but not for too long..

Anyone have a similar issue? Does it go away? Don't really want to go to the hospital for personal reasons.

    Could be a blockage maybe or a circulatory problem, I have had numbness in my calf and foot but I knew that I had a herniated disc trapping the sciatic nerve, it did take a long time to go. Is there any chance you could see a doctor at your practice?, I would if I were you. Best wishes.
