Lumbar disk disease: This is the approximate distribution of a sciatica type syndrome. If you have a computer go to google and type in dermatome map. If you look at the dermatome MAP you can see the distribution of where the nerves come from the supply the specific areas mentioned. If this is that symptomatic you probably need to go in and see your doctor and get a MRI of the lumbar spine for further evaluation.

Possibly: If the numbness was due to the position you slept in, then the numbness should resolve. If it does not, then see your doctor.
