Causes of Numbness

If you have numbness, you may experience numbness that goes away when moving a limb, numbness that correlates with movement of your neck or back, pain in adjacent joints, tingling or burning sensation in your hands or feet.

What causes numbness?

  • Nerve compression: There may be direct pressure on a nerve.
  • Diabetes: Although diabetes occurs in your feet, you may feel numbness in other areas.
  • Spinal cord: You may be suffering from a pinched nerve or a herniated disk.
  • Posture: Poor posture can lead to spinal problems, lower back problems, and poor blood circulation.
  • Injuries: Injuries to the torso, spine, hips, legs, ankles, and feet can put pressure on nerves and cause the feet and legs to go numb.
  • Sciatica: The sciatic nerve may be irritated or compressed.

Causes of Hypersensitivity

If you have hypersensitivity, you suffer from undesirable reactions produced by the immune system. The reactions may be damaging, uncomfortable, or occasionally fatal.

Symptoms of hypersensitivity frequently include bumping body or limbs into objects, difficulty with spatial awareness, recurring injury to same body part or side of the body, increased perception of pain and touch.

What causes hypersensitivity?
  • Spinal misalignment
    Spinal and brain misalignment may result in an imbalance in the nervous system that can exacerbate or produce asthmatic and allergic symptoms.
  • Allergic reaction
    The immune system reacts to foreign matter in the body.
  • Stress and anxiety
    Stress responses can stimulate the nervous system.
  • High levels of stimuli
    High levels of sensitivity to sound, sight, and touch can create strong responses.
  • Inhaling substances
    When inhaled, some substances can cause a dry cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, fever, chills, and fatigue.
