numb tingling

Posted , 4 users are following.

It seems that numbness and tingling is common with anx, for me and my health anx I notice that if I am focusing on an area of my body- say my hand, then before too long I notice definate numbness or tingling. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Yes! I can't go a day without my hands or legs going completely numb.

    Yes I get it a lot.  I mainly get it on my legs.  The problem is that because you are focusing on one area your brain picks up tis and starts to over react.  Try and distract yourself.  What you have is common in anxiety.  Take care

    Its nice to see you're getting some answers, as i've seen you've helped a lot of people on this forum, including myself. I only tend to get numbness, and tingling when i'm having an attack. In general, i don't really suffer from this. My heart races, constantly.
