    Numbing sensation felt along the extremities is a system that can be associated with a lot of medical conditions. A medical condition of immediate relevance would have to do with the Nerve connections on those areas. Nervous system problems could be of several factors like Neural Aging, or severe conditions such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Sometimes underlying chronic problems such as Diabetes Mellitus or Blood Thrombosis could play a factor for numbing sensation, and serve as well as warning signs for the patient to have themselves checked with a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment. It best to determine whether these sensory deficits are associated with any present conditions and that further diagnostic examinations be done in order to pinpoint the real cause of the problem.

    This can also be a result of nervousness. There have been cases of people who get pins and needles over their entire body when they are highly nervous or anxious.

    Neuropathy is the technical word, for numbing in the feet. Can be caused from a slipped disc in the back, diabetes, or damage to the peripheral nerves, and Raynauds as well. Which is a reaction to cold, causing numbness, and tingling, the extremities usually turn white, with that reaction. Circulatory problems may also cause this as well, among these are high cholesterol, heart disease, hardening of the arteries.
    The supplements to increase circulation are the omegas, B complex, especially innositol, and choline help to improve circulation. The amino acid l-carnatine, and co Q10, work together to strengthen the heart, and improve blood flow.
    If you are experiencing this, a full check up is warranted. Blood pressure, heart, and nerve function.http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Heart-Health-Natural-Supplements-to-lower-Cholesterol-Blood-Pressure-and-Improve-Circulation
