I'm a 20 year old Male who is relatively healthy. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night, with my body feeling extremely weird and numb. When i wriggled in my bed, I couldnt really feel the blankets brush against my skin. My arms and legs were felt numb, but I could still feel them moving. When i rub my legs or my chest, I couldn't really feel that either. I decided to go back to bed after 45 minutes, and the numbness sensation disappeared when I woke up. However, the sensation came back at lunch time, and is still going on (it is 12 am now).
I have felt this sensation when I tried marijuana twice, and it lasted for a couple of hours afterwards and dissapeared. Both times i had slept it off. That was about 3 months ago and i haven't done it since. Now that its happenign again when i am sober, I'm extremely scared, and was wondering if anyone knows what is going on. Whenever i put my hand on my face and rub it, it feels like my hand isn't there, and that my face is numb as well.
During christmas, i was sick with a cold, sore throat, and somewhat of a chest infection. I also had a minor stomach flu. Right now, still having a cough right now.. but is it normal for someone to experience numbness like that?
i was going threw the same thing about a year ago. i went to a neuroligist , they found i have nerve damage.its been over a year now and still get numb, and also pain with the numbness. please get to a doctor asap. dont wait like i did. now i have to go to pain management once a month. get cortozone shots in my spine and neck. and will be on all kinds of meds, becouse i waited so long. good luck
