Hello everyone, im a little worried and can use some input. For some time now during sleep my thighs would become numb, no matter what position i slept in. Its kinda like one of your limbs fall asleep but there are no pins and needles just numbness. At times the numbness extends on down my leg.
Right now i am very worried, the numbness already has e worried but what happened to me last night has me worried even more. Okay so i woke up out of a dead sleep last night, i dont even recall getting out of bed but here i was running to the bathroom screaming like someone was killing me, my husband was freaked out but i was having a pain like nothing i have ever felt before, i was in tears rubbing the outside of my thigh. I noticed my thigh was numb, very numb and it went on own into my foot tho the lower part of my leg wasnt as numb as my thigh was. This pain was in a spot on the outside of my thigh and it felt like someone had stabbed me with a red hot fire poker. This pain was worse then any labor pains i have had. It took the pain bout 15 minutes to subside after i stood up. Its been sore all day in that area and a little behind my knee area (back of leg behind the knee). My thigh was also numb for hours after i woke in the morning.. i am afraid i may have gotten a blood clot now.
Has anyone ever had this before? i know anxiety didnt cause that awful pain i had but my anxiety is making me a lot more afraid. I dont know what to do.. i want to go to the er but i dont know.. please help.. input is appreciated. Please forgive me for how this is written cause im on my phone.
Thank you all for listening.
