I am not a nurse, doctor or other medical practitioner. However, my search for answers for my own health issues has caused me to spend long hours researching a variety of health topics. Also, my Mom has her Ph.D. in Nutrition, so health books were always there when I was growing up. Being kept up late at night because of feeling sick provided ample opportunity to read these books in search of answers, and the books also provided a welcome distraction from my symptoms.
Anyhow, as for your numb spot: The first thing that comes to mind is nerve damage, either from Lyme/coinfections or from an injury of some kind, perhaps even a pulled muscle. Did you do any unusual activity just prior to noticing this numb spot? Is there a lump or anything different about the appearance of the skin in this location?
