Hello and welcome to Just Answer

Waking up with no feeling in your legs is a serious problem if it occurs on a consistent basis. You should be seeking emergency medical care at a hospital, and not waiting to see your Dr.

This symptom may be an indication that the nerves are being compressed as they exit the spinal column This may occur due to a bulging disk or other reason. You do not want to wait for a diagnosis as nerve damage may then be permanent.

Good luck. I hope this information helps.
