Physical numbness anyone?

Hi! For the past few days i've been experiencing some kind of numbness in my body. predominantly my arms and legs and face. i check to see if i can still feel sensations and i have no problem with that but the feeling just feels very strange and far away. also touching things feels very odd. i went to the doctor today and she did some tests to check my ability to feel and nothing came out of it. I was relieved to hear this but now i'm home and i'm having the same numb almost tight feeling around my mouth, kind of in my upperlip. sometimes eating or drinking feels strange too but i have no trouble actually functioning. yet, i'm now doubting everything that happened at the doctor and whether or not i told her enough or properly described my symptoms. i found someone on the forum who described something similar but it was a very old post and i'm unable to reach out to them so i'm hoping someone else could relate to this. i have really bad health anxiety and next to dp i'm going through ptsd so please be thoughtful with your responses, i can be very sensitive and get anxious quite quickly.

thanks for reading if u made it this far, stay safe.

Numbness in the body is a symptom of anxiety. Totally normal, nothing to stress about. I get it all the time in my face, hands, arms, and legs. Its our condition that makes us hyperaware of this and fixated on the sensations which only exacerbate it.
