Numbness/tingling in hips
When I sleep on my side, I wake up with numbness/tingling in that hip. I change to the other side and after a while wake up with numbness/tingling in that hip too but because the numbness/tingling is still in the other hip, I end up having to sleep on my back or side, both positions which I find uncomfortable and because of the interrupted sleep, I start each day off tired. Please help

Shelly, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without examining you first. It might be due to something pressing on the nerves that supply the legs just where they leave the spinal column. It might also be due to something compromising the blood flow to the legs when you lie on your side, but like I said, I can’t say much without examining you first. The best would be to see your doctor and have him determine the cause. Good luck.
