numbness in upper leg

For the last 4 weeks I wake up and my foot is very painful I put bengay on it and it gets better. Now I have numbness in my left leg starting in my knee up to my hip. What should I do now?

Check your mattress.  It's very possible a poor or hard mattress is cutting off your circulation.  Also helps to fold and pillow and put it between your knees while sleeping, so that undue stress isn't put on your hips/knees, which can cut off circulation.  Sounds to me like this is a circulation issue.  Definitely look into a better mattress (I had same problem, new mattress fixed it!)
