Pins and needles/Numbness.
« on: January 02, 2013, 11:56:14 AM »
Hello,
I have many episodes were I have pins and needles and a little bit of numbness in my hands/fingers and weirdly enough my nose  :dazed:
My doctor said this is related to aniexty..(after i got anxious it was a stroke!!)

Does anyone else suffer from this? :)

Tingling and numbness are one of the most common anxiety symptoms! Tingling can also increase if you're hyperventilating which happens a TON when our bodies get anxious.

It's the adrenaline rush that our bodies release. When we're really anxious, our body perceives danger and triggers our fight or flight system. Normally when that happens, we have a real emergency to deal with and we have an outlet for the huge rush of adrenaline. Anxiety just takes it and lets it fester. That's why physical exercise helps alleviate panic.
