How were you sleeping that your leg fell asleep? That comes from lack of blood flow and can be painful for quite a while after depending on how long it was denied blood.

It could be sore from having a cramp.

But I'm sure you are concerned about a possible blood clot?

It the pain continues, or warmth and swelling developed, you'll need to contact your doctor immediately

For now I would recommend taking some ibuprofen. Drink plenty of water. Do a little light stretching.

But just a little pain could be simply from a cramp or it having been asleep for too long.

But of you are uneasy... Make a call to your nurse ;-)

Is it red or warm at all?

I was laying on my side and had my other leg on that leg and i guess that's how it fell asleep

It could have been under some pressure while you slept for a while, as it fell asleep as well. If the soreness persists for another day without lessening I would be concerned, but otherwise I would just compare it to your neck or shoulder being sore after you slept wrong. Sometimes it can take a couple days to stop hurting, but it improves as it goes along and you can tell it's healing. But be prepared for it to get a little bit worse before it starts rapidly getting better.

Because your sleeping position caused the blood flow to be cut off for it to fall asleep in the first place. Which implies it was under some kind of pressure or bent weird, which can lead to sore muscles.

Of course I automatically think I have a blood clot
