Symptom: Numbness

DESCRIPTION: Numbness describes a loss of sensation or feeling in a part of your body. Numbness is usually caused by irritation or compression of a branch of a nerve in the periphery of your body. Diseases affecting the peripheral nerves, such as diabetes, also can cause numbness. Rarely, numbness can be caused by problems in your brain or spinal cord. Typically, numbness is similar to having your leg fall asleep. Fortunately, numbness by itself is only rarely associated with potentially life-threatening disorders such as strokes or tumors.
