The abnormal sensation on the skin including numbness and tingling is called paresthesia. Numbness and tingling on the left side can be caused by a variety of things from mild to serious and life-threatening. Pinched nerves, nerve damage, spinal damage, herniated disks, hyperventilation syndrome, and seizures can cause numbness and tingling. If your left side is numb it could be caused by stroke or cardiac problems and you should seek medical advice.
