In brief: Paresthesias

When an extremity "falls asleep, " this is known medically as paresthesia.
The causes are usually due to a nerve issue or blood flow issue. Each can have a number of possible causes, which can be narrowed down through a thorough examination. See your family doctor or internist as a place to start the process of narrowing the possible causes.
