Tried meth a couple of times. Dumb I know... Anyway I have a history of high blood pressure and have gotten it under control as of lately. I am prescribed Xanax as well. I get numbness in my fingers and lower legs by my feet. I typed in the symptoms online and it told me about about a condition called Parasthesia. Looking at the symptoms and everything, I really only noticed 2 things. 1, I have a history of benzo use and though I don t use daily or necessarily weekly, I do use it and according to what I read, one of the causes of Parasthesia is benzo withdrawl. I have no other symptoms though so I m kinda of skeptical and think it has to do with the meth elevating my blood pressure and everything CNS related. Anyway I was hoping you could provide some insight perhaps? Let me know if I could paint a clearer picture.
