can be from the fight or flight response which limits bloodflow to some body parts. read about it on the net

most anxiety sufferers get effected by the fight or flight response and should learn about it

The first time I experienced numbness I had it in both my hands and feet. I was going through a withdrawal of clonazepam too quickly and my anxiety was at about 15/10. It scared me so much, my hubby was holding my hand and I couldn't feel it.

In everyday anxiety if it gets bad I often get a numbness around the side of my mouth and part of my face.

Have you talked to your doc about the face numbness in detail??

the fight or flight response reduces bloodflow to the hands, feet and head, this is to reduce bleeding when you fight or flee to save your life

as mentioned, we all should study the effects of it on the net

I think I know what you're talking about. It's hard to put into words, but I think I used to get it, too. Anxiety/Panic can cause just about any symptom. While it may not seem like numbness, if you're feeling the same thing I did then it's still in the "numbness family" of symptoms and could easily be attributed to anxiety.

It could also be a result of incorrect breathing, which we are prone to. Hyperventilation syndrome can cause that numbness or tingling feeling. It can actually cause alot of things. Look it up online. There is good information out there about it. Feel better.
