Feeling Numb


A feeling of numbness can result from blocking out feelings, from anxiety or from depression. 

People who feel numb tend to submit to a problem instead of working on it. This can be dangerous in your situation.

Experience indicates that the following can help:

  • Admit to yourself that you feel numb. Decide to seek help.
  • Talk with family and friends. Feelings will surface. 
  • Tell your specialist. The feeling may result from your health condition or treatment.
  • Speak with a mental health professional.
  • If your doctor allows it, rigorous exercise may help.
  • Relaxation techniques may also help.
