Sorry this is totally off topic, but my husband's leg has been numb for a few weeks, and he just told me about it tonight! He has a dr's appt tomorrow. I'm nervous because his father died of a heart attack at 54, & DH is 51.. Hopefully it's just arthritis or something...ughhhhh, it's always something!

Anyhow, thanks for listening!

I hope everything is ok! I agree, it may be something more neurological than cardiovascular. I'd have him get both checked out. Let us know what happens.

My Uncle passed away suddenly from a heart attack at age 51. He was very active and in fact, was getting snowmobiles loaded up to go on a trip when he had the heart attack. His Father (my Dad's step father), died of a heart attack in his early 50's as well. So, they told my cousin, who was only about 20 at the time his Father died, to be very careful with his cardiovascular health, exercise, eat healthy, etc, because it is genetic. :(

Thank you! Wow sorry to hear about your uncle, that's so young! I really worry about my husband... I think this is just a pinched nerve or something. I know it really has to be bugging him for him to go to the dr! lol

Thanks. We lost him a few years ago now, but it was a complete shock, very unexpected.

I hope your DH gets some answers soon and that it is not a major issue!

Well the doc said he thinks it's a form of Sciatica & referred him to an Orhopedist. At least it doesn't have anything to do with his heart! He's been laid off for 2 years & then went back to work full force so I'm sure he probably did something at work.

Thanks for all the well wishes!!
