If this has occurred suddenly and includes the whole half of your body (face, arm, +/- leg), it may be a sign of a stroke.
You should go to an emergency room for a complete evaluation. Complicated migraines and some spine problems can also cause hemi-body or extremity numbness, but you should have a complete evaluation to distinguish among these possibilities.

If that occurs at any time, anywhere, immediate emergency room evaluation should be done and the person should get there by ambulance.
The earlier the intervention the better the result.
