I've had a leg cramp for 3 days, it's moved down my leg, and now my foot is numb, but still with a lot of leg/hip pain. Is this dangerous?

In brief: Leg pain and numbnes

Sounds like sciatica, the way you describe the pain moving down your leg and having numbness.
This is usually due to a slipped disc. Would have it checked out.
