This answer was rated:

My whole body, from head to toe, has been numb for now 2 and a a half months. I have been through several blood tests, a brain scan and seen a nerve doctor. No one seems to know what is wrong with me. Luckily, I don´t hava brain tumour, MS og nerve damage! I have been going through a divorce ... 5 months ago, but am getting over it. I´m taking sleeping pills, one before bed. Have you any idea what is wrong with me? It is not painful, but very annoying. It´s kind of like pins and needles..... everywhere. Best regards, XXXXX XXXXX Iceland.
