Brief Answer:
Can be a neural cause.

Detailed Answer:


Sudden unilateral numbness is suggestive of a neural ( nerve compression or nerve irritation related) cause. These neural problems are a challenging thing to treat as careful examination is needed to ascertain the level of nerve involvement. You can take some methylcobalamin supplements till you consult your neurophysician.

I hope this answers your query. Wishing you good health.
