For the past 3 days my left shin has been numb, you know like if you sit on your foot for a long time and it goes to sleep? Anybody know what could cause it be numb for so long? A pinched nerve, possibly?

200th post...wheee!

funny you should mention that.

two months ago, my shin was numb for several days. it didn't regain full sensation till about two weeks later. don't know what the deal was. but it's fine now. if your shin doesn't start feeling better in a few days, i'd have it looked at.

If persistant numbness is accompanied by a loss of sensation to the affected area (you can't feel temperatures, or touch that much), if NEEDS to be reported to a doctor.

If not, it is likely to be from some sort of interference to the blood flow, which, as Gumdrop Girl said, will pass.

In the meantime, keep active and keep it warm.
