    Default legs falling asleep

    hello,

    What is the meaning of this idiom?

    CONTEXT: I have more problems with my legs falling asleep than pain. ( The sentence is about physical exercises.)

    Default Re: legs falling asleep

    "Falling asleep" when referring to body parts mean that they go numb, or get that "pins and needles" feeling, due to either restricted blood flow or nerve damage.
