How long has it now been numb for?
Has this ever happened before?
Anything different about how/where you slept last night?
Does the area look abnormal (have a friend look for you )?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information.
The most likely cause of this numbness is pressure on your head while you are sleeping.
It is very unlikely to be due to any sort of vascular issue, nerve problem, etc.
It you were really concerned then you could have your doctor take a look at you during an episode of numbness so she could map out the extent of the affected area. In the end, however, I am afraid that even the most extensive medical workup will be unable to find any underlying cause that can be treated.
The good news?
There is very little chance that this is a sign of anything serious.
Does this make sense to you?
