Yes having a numbness feeling in your body can be a sign that you have anxiety and are stressed out.

Usually when you get over the stress and your body has time to recover the numbness feeling should go away after awhile.

When you become stressed again your body can begin to feel numb again and numbness is a sign of anxiety.

People who are prone to anxiety disorders tend to go to the doctors and complain of heart palpitations and headaches, shortness of breath and chest pain, a feeling of instability and tingling or numbness of the fingers.  I was advised to for alarm.
