Leg Sometimes Goes Dead What Does This Mean Am Only Young
Nerve Compression: For most, a limb "falling asleep" just means you need to change positions so that the nerve is not compressed and then it will be fine. There are other reasons for abnormal sensations or weakness, though - spinal/bone issues, muscle or nerve diseases or infections, etc. If your leg "going dead" is frequent, getting worse, or really starting to seem abnormal, talk with your doctor. ...Read more

If I got a dead leg in the same spot I tore my thigh last yr should I be worried about the old injury?
Maybe: Muscle injuries like this typically heal with fibrotic tissue ("scar" tissue) and can be susceptible to new injury. I would seek evaluation by an orthopedic specialist to assess the severity of the injury. A hematoma (collection of blood) within the muscle can slow recovery if not treated adequately. Sometimes, an injection in the injured muscle can hasten recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dead left leg comes now and again, lasts around a day, feels like it is coming from my hip, is this a sign of something serious?
Potentially, but: unlikely. Pinching of the sciatic nerve where it exits from the spinal canal and blockage of an artery in your leg are serious problems Less serious (and more common) is when the leg "goes to sleep'" when there's pressure on the sciatic nerve from crossing the legs, sitting on a hard chair or sitting in one position for a long time. Usually a tingling feeling occurs when it wakes up. ...Read more
Rough white growth on leg. It's a growth that looks like a lumpy mass of dead skin cells. Not itchy, but when I scrape off it bleeds and grows back?
Possibly: While osteonecrosis or bone death can be due to several causes, it would not necessarily involve multiple parts of the limb. Since the cause of bone death in leg bone would generally be from disruption in blood supply in that part of the body, movement of adjoining feet bones may not be affected if muscles, tendons and nerve haven't been damaged simultaneously.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
