Hi,
Welcome to healthcaremagic
We need to know your age, your diabetic status, and the length and severity of the problem. The numbness could be due to a metabolic problem like diabetes or a central nervous system problem or it may be just transient. It could also be precipitated by a few drugs if you are taking to control hypertension or any pain. It needs to be completely evaluated.
Take care
