    Default Numb Leg

    Ever since I went back to work on Jan 10 after Christmas break, I've been having a real problem with my left leg.
    It started out as a hot and cold sensation in my thigh and then along the outside of my thigh went numb from my hip to my knee. First off it only happened if I was on my feet for an extended period, and would go away quickly. But now my leg goes numb if I stand for even a short period, and if I stand up for a long time it takes forever for the feeling to come back to my leg.
    It gets extremely painful after a full days work on my feet, but I don't want to give up work this early and there's nothing I can do at work in the way of a sit down job.

    Has anyone else had a problem like this?

    Cheers, Cindy

    It could be the baby on one of your nerves that is causing the numbness, if your worried you should see your GP. HTH.

    Cindy,
    I can completely relate except my leg goes numb when I sit with an intense pain in my hip. I'm going to talk to my doc about it on wednesday. Maybe I can give you an insight then into what it could be.

    I have a similar problem, although i get pins and needles rather than numbness.
    I've been told its probably the baby pressing against a nerve.

    Went to the doctor today and he told me that it's a nerve. Nothing that can be done about it, everything should return to normal after the baby is born. He said he sees this problem in about 1 in 50 pregnancies.
    Oh well, that's the only problem I have so I can consider myself lucky.
