    Mention emotional/physical numbness at health center?

    I'm intending to go to a local health center to at least get my severe fatigue figured out. Could I also mention the fact that I am numb to sensory feelings like smell, taste and my skin? I don't want to mention too many negative things.

My Mum also told me the same, and she's supped it for years. I tried some camomile and mint tea once, hated the taste, found it undrinkable and tipped...
