Yes.: Yes. While transient numbness is usually nothing to worry about, numbness that persists this long may be a sign of serious illness. You should consult a physician.

Get it checked out: It sounds like a nerve impingement problem or possibly an early sign of stroke. neither are something to mess with. See your physician with regards to the possibility of stroke. then you chiropractor to rule out nerve impingement.
