Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Do you have any weakness of limbs, slurred speech?

What is your age and gender?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
female, 65, just general exhaustion, no slurred speech

Just numbness on one side in absence of any weakness of particular area can be due to nerve compression due to lying on that side for prolong period of time. I would recommend you to wait and monitor as mostly numbness go away on its own however if it does not get better in one day do get this examined by your doctor to rule out anything concerning. Keep your legs elevated on pillow while lying down.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
