Thanks for information.

In the absence of any chronic disease & with stress it looks that numbness in your hands & feet are just manifestation of chronic stress.Generally these symptoms are due to either compression of nerves (like disc prolapse) or due to lack of nutrients (due to deficiency of the neurotropic vitamins like vitamin B1,2,12,6 & deficiency of iron in anemia).I will advice you following to have relief-

1.Have a complete examination of your blood including Hb,TDLC,ESR,ESTIMATION OF SERUM LEVEL OF VITAMIN B12).

2.Avoid excessive physical & mental stress.

3.Avoid any excessive intake of tea,coffee.

4.Start doing yoga & meditation.

5.Learn the technique of biofeed back ,imaginary relaxation,deep breathing exercises from an expert.

6.Take a multivitamin formulation which include neurotrophic vitamins.

Hope this will help you.
