Foot falling asleep.: I think you are looking at this backwards.

Might be your back: If we assume you are laying in bed when this occurs, the position may be contributing the problem. The nerves to the lower extremity stem from the lower back and positional changes can disrupt the nerve signal. This can sometime cause numbness. You need to have this checked.

Been experiencing leg and feet jerks for a few weeks now. It's an involuntary jerk. Also happens when falling asleep. On Lexapro (escitalopram) 20mg for 2 month help?
If its both feet: And occasional don't worry. If its just one leg / foot (the same one) you need to get an EEG. All antidepressants lower the seizure threshold a bit. Focal seizures are more likely to occur as one transitions from one stage of sleep to another. If its preventing you from getting restful sleep see your doctor for an evaluation and a sleep study (periodic limb movement). ...Read more
I've started a bad habit of falling asleep with my left foot hanging off the bed and when I wake up, it is swollen. My ankle also swells up. I'm scared that I'm going to get clots. Can i?
