Kick to the leg

I got kicked in my lower outer leg tonight by a grown adult. It feels like it is asleep and tired. It hurts to bear weight. What can I do and should I be going in.

It sounds as if you were kicked near a nerve in your leg and this can cause temporary loss of sensation. Time and ice may help but if it persists for more than a week or causes pain when walking you should probably see a neurologist.
As the last doctor opined..if you can stand on it will be ok....
It does not sound serious but should be seen by your doctor.

If it hurts to bear weight and you have numbness, you should be evaluated by a doctor. Any injury that results in numbness should be evaluated to see if it's something serious or not.
