Strange Sensations

Can stress cause facial numbness or tingling?  And what about a strange sensation that something is crawling in your head?  I like to call them creepy crawly sensations.   I have been a bit under the weather and I have noticed that when I stress out I get these strange symptoms which make me very uncomfortable.  I even get awaken in my sleep by body spasms!  Is this normal?

The facial numbness or tingling, I've not heard of, so you might want to get checked out for that.
But the muscle spasms, yes they can be a symptom of anxiety. As Anxiety makes people all tense quite often. I think you should go to the doctors sometime to get checked out.
