left leg and foot are numb

i'm not sure where to post this so i'm posting this here, hoping anyone would know. thanks in advance for the help.

yesterday i spent the day walking and when i came back home and took my shoes off i noticed my left toes were numb. i thought it was because i was tired so i massaged them a little and tried to forget about it, but it wouldn't go away. when i woke up this morning it was still there and it was also on my foot and a little bit on the leg also. i must also say i'm under A LOT of stress because of a personal situation (if you read my last thread... i'm still dealing with that situation) so i'm thinking it could be a mixture between being tired from all the walking and being stressed. but i was reading about blood clots causing these symptoms and i started to freak out. i'm 27 and until a couple of months (that i moved) i was eating healthy... not so much right now that i'm eating a lot of junk food. too bad. i also have to say i have history of high blood pressure in my family but i have been controlling my blood pressure pretty well without needing any medication, the last time that i checked.

i think that's all. oh, i took an aspirin (bad thing self medication, i know, but it's just an aspirin) just in case.

thanks.

Re: left leg and foot are numb

ok, now it's the right hand too and i'm starting to freak out... which is probably the reason why it's getting worse...

Re: left leg and foot are numb

sudden numbness in any area and that appears to be spreading, should really be evaluated by your doc.there could be any number of reasons for this to occur.marcia
