i took a three day rest from my cardio. When i got back to my routine my left leg fell asleep. like when u sit with ur legs crossed for a while and then stand up, thats what it feels like. U think it might be cause of the rest i took? i have a knife in my hand and im marking where im going to cut, just saying lol wut? but srsly wat u think it is?

Sounds like you may be developing some sort of polyneuropathy (perhaps you are diabetic). Would suggest you inform your doctor of your symptoms.
Are you taking any medication? If not, I would make an appointment with a cardiologist asap.

Seeing a doctor might not be a bad idea, but I would hope its something much less serious than the response above. In my own experience I've had my my leg from the groin down, leg from the knee down, and just my foot all fall asleep on different occasions but this usually only happens after about 7-8 miles so I'm usually quite close to being done anyway. I've found that stretching around the hip helps the most with this sort of thing, I guess maybe some tendons around there are tightening up and pinching a nerve or some blood vessels or something.
