In brief: Several Causes
There are several causes of leg numbness but most are associated with the compression of the nerves that supply the leg.
By compressing these nerves, either in the spine or at a local level, you will experience numbness. If your symptoms are sudden and last for several hours without improvement please see your primary care physician.
