I didn't have time to read old posts if there are any but I notice that this one is months old. This concerns me as to your true Dx. Do you know what it is? Did you mention PTSD? Have you had problems with cognitive ability, memory, inability to express yourself, and, most importantly, any severe nightmares, flashbacks or panic attacks? Anything traumatic happen to you in the last couple/few years?
In addition, surrounding this period of numbness, did you suffer from MDD?
My numbness lasted for a long time. Other not so fun things came and went as well. Thats why I ask these questions. If you'd rather, feel free to babblemail me.
I'm in full remission (after hell)
You need to see an experienced PDoc to pull this off. I take my BP regularly (normal), I see him every 2 weeks, and he said to treat me I had to be in therapy which I didn't like at first, now I don't know what I was thinking to rule it out. Its all good and I swear to God I am happy for the first time in 3-4 years.
Let me know where you're at...
