My husband's foot is numb....I'm worried about him.

Hello. About 6 weeks ago my husband sat outside on a log for about 8 hours. The next morning his left foot was numb, and he is unable to move it upwards. When he walks he looks like he is trotting with his left foot. Since we don't have medical insurance, he has not seen a doctor. He also told me that he has some memory loss from that day, but he did drink several beers. Does this sound like it could be a stroke, or more likely a nerve problem from sitting in one position for a long period of time. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I'm worried about him. Thank you
