Hi, Numbness is usually caused by damage, irritation or compression of several nerves or a single branch of a nerve, most often situated in the periphery of your body. Diseases affecting the peripheral nerves, such as diabetes, also can cause numbness. Rarely, numbness can be caused by problems in your brain or spinal cord.
Consult Neurologist if worsens gradually, Affects both sides of the body, Comes and goes, Seems related to certain tasks or activities, particularly repetitive motions, Affects only a part of a limb, such as your toes or fingers....
