In brief: Go to your PCP

Go to your primary care physician.
They can asses if your numbness is due to something they can easily treat and manage for you. If it is something more complicated, they can refer you to a specialist.

In brief: No

You should first see your primary/regular doctor and if he/she thinks it is a neurologic disorder or a problem with the nerves he/she can refer you to a neurologist for further evaluation.
