Temporary Loss of foot/leg control

The other night I woke in the middle of the night to go get my baby I got out of bed no problem took a step with my left fine moved my right leg and my foot dragged like my right leg moved but my foot literally dragged toe down. I panicked and sat down I rubbed my foot that did not feel numb or asleep but figured I would give it a try I stood back up and was fine. Any ideas? It was really scary. I'm 29 years old healthy female

I can understand your fears. Once in a while an individual may have loss of sensation in leg or a feeling of one leg being dragged due to exposure to cold at night, uneven bed, wrong posture etc. It could also be a sign of mini-stroke. So, please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
