It is important to investigate if the numbness could be product of a serious condition like a stroke or TIA ( conditions in which the brain blood flow decreases by the presence of a clot that blocks the brain blood flow ) . These conditions must be managed immediately to prevent developing serious further health side effects.
Besides these conditions , there are other possibilities that could produce similar symptoms and should also be investigated including : nerve injury , nerve compression , the presence of an herniated disc , vascular problems like atherosclerosis ( in this condition , the blood flow decreases when cholesterol builds up ) producing a numbness or tingling sensation, diabetes , low thyroid blood levels, neurological diseases like multiple sclerosis in which the immune cells mistakenly attack the nerve cells, peripheral neuropathy ( a condition , in which the peripheral nerves become swollen ,inflamed or irritated), vitamin B 12 deficiency and/or irregular electrolyte blood levels specially sodium , potassium or calcium.
