Maybe nerve pressed: A person who gets numbness, tingling, or odd sensations in a part of his body only when in certain positions, is likely pressing on the nerve to that part of the body. Pressing on the blood vessels to that part of the body is also possible, but less likely. The person can see his primary care doctor and show him exactly what happens. The doctor may refer to a neurologist for further evaluation.
