my mother has recently had her left leg getting numb for about 10-15 minutes each time 3-5 times a day.
the numbness starts from her thigh to her toes and she would feel nothing for that amount of time. before it starts, her leg heats up and then the numbness begin.
please help by your comments, anyone has an idea about what is wrong with her?
I appreciate all your comments.

  • Please check out Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Search at mayoclinic.org and ninds.nih.gov and other sites. If a neurologist determines that your mother has this syndrome, time is of the essence for best results in treating this rather surprising condition. I wish you both the best of luck and favorable results in seeking help for her situation.
