There are many nerves that travel down the leg all the way to the foot that allow you to feel something as it touches your skin.
Numbness is usually a sign that one or a few of these nerves are being pinched.
The nerve can be pinched in the lower back or anywhere along the leg.
Numbness in the leg should be evaluated by a physician. The longer the numbness is present the more likely permanent nerve damage is happening.
