Customer Question

I cannot move my left foot up or around; however, I have some ability to move my left food down. My foot feels "heavier" then the right one. The foot is sort of limp; jet, I still have almost the full range of sensation, just lacking ability to move my foot up. There is no pain at all at any given moment in time since the numbness appeared. Also, I wasn't injured. I just woke up from the nap with the above mentioned symptoms.
Thanks for any help.
