I went to a yoga/pilates class this morning and sometime during the session I noticed that my left calf felt numb. I thought it "fell asleep" when it was in a raised leg pose. But it hasn't gone away. The class finished at 10 and it's now 3:00 and I still feel numb. The weird thing is that there is no pain, i can use my leg fine and I only notice it's numb when i touch them. It's as if the skin is shot up with novacaine. The muscles feel fine.

I've gone for a walk and that hasn't helped, I've massaged it and that hasn't helped.

Any suggestions?
