Can't say how bad. As you probably realize, the numbness is caused by either compressed nerves or reduced circulation. Reduced circulation is bad for obvious reasons. But I don't think that's the cause of PN. (Think about how your arm feels after "being asleep" as the feeling starts to come back. You'd notice, might even like! But I digress.) Compressed nerves can become permanently damaged nerves.
