did you see my response above?
does the numbness improve when you stand up and walk around? if it does, then it is a sign of temporary blockage of circulation into the legs.
do you have a history of back problems? slipped disk, back pain which could be pinching on nerves to your foot?
Falling a sleep like that sitting on your bottom on the floor can put a lot of pressure on your siatic or femoral nerves which run through your butt
This can cause numbness in your legs and feet.
That is good you are walking now which is better than before
Your nerve function should come back to functioning with time
You shouldn't be falling a asleep like that sitting down on the floor. It is bad for your nerves.
Keep walking and stretching your legs.
Your nerves should come back and the numbness should go away.
Your limping should go away as well
You can always see a doctor and get your nerves examined.
The numbness should get better in 3-7 days. Keep walking everyday. Work on stretching the leg and back of the leg and hamstring muscles gently every day. Don't fall asleep sitting on your butt or bottom again like that. It was tough.
