Numbness becomes a barometer that lets me know when I’m overdoing things.
Numbness is often associated with other symptoms such as tingling (pins-and-needles), weakness, pain, difficulty walking, and increased risk of falls . When a person experiences complete numbness (anesthesia), delayed reaction to harmful situations such as de...
