What is Numbness?

Numbness refers to a loss of sensation or the inability to feel touch, pressure, or temperature in a specific area of the body. It can occur suddenly or develop gradually and may be temporary or chronic. Numbness is often accompanied by a tingling or “pins and needles” sensation known as paresthesia. Various factors can contribute to numbness.

Greenbell Medical Clinic conducts thorough assessments to identify the root cause of numbness and provides targeted physical therapy. Our goal is to reduce numbness pain and improve sensory function, promoting overall well-being.

Understanding the Condition

  • Prevalence: Numbness can affect individuals of all ages, with the prevalence varying depending on the underlying cause. For example, peripheral neuropathy is estimated to affect 2-7% of the general population, with higher prevalence in older age groups.
  • Signs and Symptoms: Numbness is often associated with tingling sensations, and it may progress to a complete loss of sensation in the affected areas. It can impact daily activities and may be indicative of nerve-related issues.
  • Complication: Untreated numbness may lead to functional impairments and reduce the individual’s quality of life. Additionally, it is crucial to address the underlying cause to prevent potential complications related to nerve damage.

Etiology and Risk Factors

  • Pressure on Nerves: Compression or pressure on nerves, often due to prolonged sitting or resting in one position, can lead to numbness. This is commonly referred to as “falling asleep” or having a limb “go to sleep.”
  • Peripheral Neuropathy: Conditions such as diabetes, alcohol abuse, certain medications, and infections can damage peripheral nerves, causing numbness in the affected areas.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the median nerve in the wrist, as seen in carpal tunnel syndrome, can lead to numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand.
  • Nerve Damage: Injuries, trauma, or surgeries can result in nerve damage, leading to numbness in the affected area.
  • Stroke: Reduced blood flow to the brain, as seen in a stroke, can cause numbness or weakness on one side of the body.
  • Multiple Sclerosis: This autoimmune condition affects the central nervous system, leading to a variety of symptoms, including numbness.
  • Herniated Disc: A herniated disc in the spine can compress nerves, causing numbness and tingling in the areas supplied by those nerves.
  • Vitamin Deficiency: Deficiencies in certain vitamins, such as B12, can result in nerve damage and numbness.
  • Raynaud’s Disease: This condition affects blood flow to certain parts of the body, usually the fingers and toes, causing numbness and color changes.
  • Infections: Infections, such as Lyme disease, shingles, or other viral or bacterial infections, can lead to nerve damage and numbness.
  • Migraines: Some individuals may experience numbness or tingling as part of a migraine aura.
  • Autoimmune Disorders: Conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis can cause inflammation that affects nerves, resulting in numbness.
  • Spinal Cord Injury: Trauma or injury to the spinal cord can lead to numbness in the areas below the injury site.
