I can still feel it when I touch there....but I don't feel it 100%

It's driving me nuts!!!!!!

I also get numbness. My fingertips, toes, tip on tongue, and my right cheekbone into my temple. Mine doesn't itch but it feels very uncomfortable. It lasts for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. Sometimes my fingertips get completely white like there is no blood in them, and when you press the skin it doesn't bounce back.

I don't know what to recomend as of yet, but hopefully will have more info after I go to TCI the end of September.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I do. My whole face will be numb and itchy at the same time, weird.

Also I will scratch invisible itches until I bleed without realizing it.

Another sprinkle on the cookie I guess...

COOKIES? Who's got cookies???? :D

I've had this sensation - or lack thereof. Usually, though, it's in my thoracic area. I can feel a deep itch in my back, but when I go to scratch it, I can barely get rid of the itch because my skin is numb. :x Very frustrating....

I guess I've been no help...sorry...carry on....

Hi! I have delt with this for four years and you just kind of get use to it. I am pretty well numb throughout my body and you just have to remember not to use your nails. A wash cloth helps for the face. Sorry I don't have anything better.

Hi, I have this too. It is like a wave of numbness around my mouth, chin and throat. I have a hard time swallowing when this happens. It's not constant. I sometimes wondered if I was not having a seizure. Maybe just stress. I could never really explain it to anyone so I just live with it.
