There is nothing to worry if it has happened only due to sleep.. sometimes in sleep , nerves compression occurs unknowingly,.. it gets resolved soon after u change position.. if it remains for long or occurs frequently then it is worrisome . Consult neurosurgeon immediately at tht time

Nothing to worry if it lasted only for sometime and improved later . If it is still weak or numb , please consult a neurologist immediately..
