In brief: Sciatic nerve

May have slipped disc in your lumbar spine.

In brief: Some Nerve 2

Like my previous post on a similar issue, compression of the sciatic nerve while sitting may lead to many symptoms, including numbness ("falling asleep").
This is commonly due to spinal compression from stenosis or a bulging disc. There are several potential causes and if the symptoms progress you may need further evaluation and intervention.
