8. Sudden Numbness or Weakness of the Leg
The sudden numb sensation or weakness in the leg due to stroke is related to the part of the brain that is damaged. This happens when the nerves and brain cells associated with sensory and motor functions are inhibited, and the brain can’t make the necessary connections or send the proper signals to the leg. As a result, the leg feels numb or weak. Other sensations include a sense of heaviness or tingling.
