What causes numbness in the feet?

hi, my legs(lower) are swelling up daily now and if I lay down it feels like what can only be described as air bubbles popping. I was sitting on the sofa for about 20 minutes the other night and when I went to stand up I couldnt feel my legs at all they were completely numb to the point that walking felt like they were asleep but a different sensation as there was no tingling feeling as I walked I fell over several times

Hello,

It could be a neuropathic symptom.
Consult a neurologist and get evaluated.
An MRI scan may be required in case of diagnostic confusion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
