Good Morning Rose,

Numbness is a very common symptom of stress, anxiety, fear, and panic.

Since there are many medical conditions that can cause stress, anxiety, and panic symptoms, it’s always wise to discuss new or changing symptoms with your doctor. Doctors generally test to rule out more serious health conditions and can easily tell the difference between a more serious medical condition and anxiety.

Good luck and do stick with us as we are here to support all.
