Numbness In Legs When Lying Down
I have numbness, tingling and sometimes pain down the outer side of my left leg frequently when sitting or lying down. What could be causing this? Should i visit a neurologist ?
Not a rare thing: Compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, usually at the groin can do what you describe. Common causes include tight clothing compressing the groin, intrapelvic disorders, aneurysms of femoral artery, pelvic brim bone spurs, etc, etc.) neurology consult will help make diagnosis & maybe resolve it too. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Although it's certainly possible for circulation problems to COEXIST with the encephalopathy it's not necessarily its CAUSE. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

I have had bad muscle spasms in the middle of my back and when laying down at night my legs and sometimes my whole body goes numb. Why?
