Well, i’m sure it’s not nerve damage. They name it like this because by medical therm it looks like nerve damage. Absence of reaction to stimuli, pain sensation and other sensations is described. There is no other illness in this world that cause skin numbness, it’s only nerve degeneration. But the point is that we have a lot of examples when numbness comes and goes day by day. I have numbness on entire skin of my body, what kind of nerve damage is this? There is just something inhibited. On PSSD forum we have some theories about GABA/Dopamine implication. I myself had minutes or hours of skin anesthesia remission. In the same time i felt dopamine in my brain, i felt again smells, i felt the sun. It was only couple of minutes. each time.
I absolutely do not agree about nerve damage. If someone have nerve damage that his place is not on PSSD forum.
