    asleep leg

    You know when your arm or your leg is under your body for a long time OR sometimes because of not moving it for a long time, you have this problem, in which your arm/leg is fizzy or fuzzy and when you move it you think it is asleep! Sometimes you think your leg/arm has low electricity or bubbles inside!
    Did you get?

    Yes. Your arm or leg is asleep.

    Very interesting, I thought only we use asleep for non-movable fuzzy legs! What a small world! And similar!

    You know because of the difficulty I had to describe the feeling you have when your leg is asleep I said fuzzy. And non-movable used because in this case you can't move your leg temporarily.

    When a limb is "asleep" it tingles. but one can still move it. The tingling is just sensory, not motor.

    When the blood supply starts to recirculate after being temporarily interrupted the tingling sensation is colloquially called 'pins and needles'.
