    Anxiety does that to you, but please check with your doctor to rule out any physical illness. But don't worry anxiety can be awful. I'm going through it now ...

    I get this too, like a proper numb feeling that keeps coming and going and a constant weird feeling in my arm and leg on the left side. I'm still willing to get this checked as I agree it is scary

    I could have wrote your post!!! 

    This is what I get on a regular basis. 

    I do get a twitch though as well on one side of the face. Maybe it's anxiety related, I don't know. I understand it's worrying though.

    HI I get your feeling all the time it's starts in the middle of my forehead and seems to go round my face and down to my ear . I now no it's part of anxiety reading what others have wrote witch makes me feel much better knowing it's nothin more than anxiety . I am learning to cope with anxiety . I read a article and a man said when you feel your anxiety or panic attack is coming on invite it in to your mind (come on let's have it give me you best shot ) . It like clouds in the sky passing by they come they go just like anxiety it comes and it goes . One part of you has to be the dominant one and the other is the weak . I am the dominant one and the anxiety is the weak it doesn't always work that way but it's 80% in my favour . Hope all this makes sence
