Default What the........

I fell asleep on the couch last night for about a hr. 1 1/5 then went to bed. I noticed then I had the sensation that my right foot was falling asleep. Went to bed, up a couple of hours later and it was worse. I know I wasn't sleeping in some weird position because I was just laying there for a while hoping to go back to sleep.
I've had something similar happen before but it straightens itself out in just a few minutes, not this time. It's now 2 hrs. later and it's still the same. I can feel the numbness/sleepiness all the way up into the calf.
I had told the podiatrist about this before ('bout my feet sometimes going to sleep when I do) and they did the testing for PAD and everything came out looking good.
I do have neuropathy in my feet however so they're always kind of numb and tingly but not like this and that is always just in my feet, not going up my leg as well.
Any ideas?

I would take it in and get it checked out. It could be peripheral, but it also could be central -- ie, a small stroke.

Scary yes, but really you just need to rule it out!

I agree Foxi. I told the other half when he got up that if it hasn't straightened itself out by the time we are up and moving around, a couple of hours, I was going to make a trip to the dreaded ER and let them check it out. Especially since I've already had a *possible* stroke scare.

and check this out Foxi. The Podiatrist scheduled me for an EMG and made a referral to the Neurologist. As I was leaving his office they called me back and said they can't do an EMG because the 2 people they had who can read them were no longer there! Then, after over a week waiting for an appt. for the Neurologist I called and found out they are not taking any new appts. at all and don't know when they will. You'd think that a hospital like Truman would have that covered.
