Is Numbness a serious problem?
Numbness is most commonly associated with some type of nerve damage, irritation, or compression. When numbness occurs without other symptoms, it doesn't typically represent a medical emergency. However, numbness can be a symptom of a serious condition if it occurs alongside symptoms such as: numbness on one whole side of body, sudden onset, dizziness/giddiness. One can not totally differentiate the cause unless examined by an expert, so it is suggestable to consult a doctor.
