I'm on Linsinopril for high blood pressure. What it does it not only protects the kidneys, but it stops a certain enzyme, or substance, it produces..making the blood pressure lower. Quite a few other blood pressure pills thought trigger the heart, that's why I like this one better. The first time I was put on a blood pressure medication, it was heart related like a lot are. I started to black out, but thankfully didn't drop to the floor.
But so far, I'm not numb thankfully. Never heard of it, unless your medication is restricting blood flow to that region. Which, in that case, you might wish to talk to your Dr about it. It could be a side effect, or something that shouldn't be happening.
