See details: You have likely contused a nerve and the numbness should resolved over 2-4 weeks. If it persists or you develop any weakness, see a doctor.

You most likely: injured some very SUPERFICIAL nerve endings. They will "regenerate" (come back) in several weeks...... Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
