Questions relating to a decrease or loss of sensation or feeling. It can be a physical or an emotional symptom.

Numbness is a decrease or total loss of sensation in a part of the body. It is not weakness or inability to move; it is only a sensory phenomenon, also described as a deadening or dullness of an area. It is sometimes accompanied by tingling ("pins-and-needles") or weakness. If so, please add a separate tag for each symptom.
