Two possibilities: Paresthesia can result from trauma to the nerves serving the affected area. If there is something putting pressure on the nerve, sometimes removal of the offending object can relieve the paresthesia. Other times, the cause of the paresthesia may not be evident and may be the result of just disturbing the nerve (eg. Nearby extraction). In such cases, the passage of time will usually relieve the it.
