Anxiety and Stress Disorders (Children)

Symptoms of Adult Anxiety

12/05/2000

Question:

I am an adult. I have a numbness and tingling in my hands, feet, and face. My soles and palms feel like they are on needles at times. When I wake up in morning my hands and feet are asleep.This all started 2 weeks ago. Is this caused by anxiety? My blood work shows that my sugar and blood pressure are both good. Please help.

Answer:

This constellation of symptoms may or may not be related to anxiety. I would suggest that you consult your primary care physician to evaluate this problem.
