What could be the reason for numbness in leg and briefly losing consciousness after a short flight ?

Hello, I have been having, for more or less the past month or so, numbness in the top part of the right leg. No pain , just some tingling . Also, last night, after taking a short flight, I had dinner and after finishing became confused and briefly lost consciousness . I would estimate this lasted about 3-4 seconds. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Numbness in right leg may be due to diabetes, nerve compression or any demyelinating disease.
You are giving of history if confusion and brief loss of consciousness which may be due to transient ischemic attack(TIA) or HTN
