What causes my legs/feet to go sleep (numb and tingly)? When I sit in chair or cross my legs? What can I try/do to keep this from happening?
Likely benign: Not unique to compress nerves especially on crossing legs. Tends to be transient and reversible. If the numbness persists, then that suggest more permanent problem. Some people with early neuropathy have higher susceptibility, and familial susceptibility to pressure palsy altho rare may be a cause. Read more

I have numbness by the side of my left foot, almost to the ankle. Irritating, sometimes I don't sleep due to changing position of the leg.
Lumbar spine: Consider l-5 disc protrusion or spinal stenosis. This is also the distribution of the sural nerve - check to see if you have an irregularity in the shape of the ankle area (lump?) that could represent something impinging on this nerve or if this numb feeling changes with movement of your foot/ankle versus movement of your spine/sleep position. Does it stop when you sleep in fetal position? Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a pinched siatica nerve. Does that cause numbness in the whole leg? I get numb in the leg and foot when I run. Also sometimes when I sleep.
It's possible: Most likely condition would be a pinched nerve. The nerves that supply the feet stem from nerve branches traveling from the leg. The "pinch" could be from the back at its root, but it an also be locally due to musculature. Another thing to be checked is circulation because if blood flow is hampered to a an area, it can cause pain and reduce function in the nerves. Get checked properly.

Pressure on nerves: From the sleep position is most likely at your age. This is not normal, so you should experiment with using pillows under your knees, sleeping on your stomach etc. And also changing sleep position from time to time. If the condition continues or worsens, you should have an examination to be sure that there is not something going on in the spine or in the blood vessels. Read more

Varies: There are a number of possibilities, I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. Numbness is a neurological symptom and a nerve conduction test can usually sort it out as well. The two most common causes are either a pinched nerve somewhere, with carpal tunnel syndrome being the most common that involves the thumb; or a neurological condition such as a neuropathy for example.
