The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

To dream that you feel a numbness creeping over you, in your dreams, is a sign of illness, and disquieting conditions

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

1. A good omen for business and activities.

2. Possible health or physical issues.

3. A feeling of loss, cut off from energy and life force—usually emotionally, sometimes socially.

4. Avoid­ance of difficult or painful situations.

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

To dream that you feel Numb is generally a matter of physical health; it is not an omen in itself. Consult a doctor.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

Being unable to relate to feelings in the physical body while dreaming may indicate that the dreamer has been in a state of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, in which the body is temporarily unable to move. Alternatively, this experience may indicate that the incident being dreamed about was too emotionally numbing for the dreamer to feel.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

There is information in all sensation. To be without sensation is to be blocking some form of nonverbal communication about the potential danger in a situation. You may be blocking painful feelings by making yourself numb to them. This may or may not be a good idea, for sometimes blocking pain is a good way of getting through a very difficult circumstance. Consider where you are feeling numb and ask yourself what you might be feeling or sensing if this part of you weren’t numbed off.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

Feeling numb probably means you have repressed some strong emotion because it was too shocking for you to entertain it in your conscious mind.

Paralyzation

(see Lameness, Numbness)

The inability to make a decision leaves you in a corner or leads to a dead end.

A part of yourself has remained unexpressed or underdeveloped, and therefore it is unable to integrate properly, causing arrested progress. Look to see what region of your body is paralyzed for more insight.

For example, having your hand paralyzed might reflect an inability to give charitably or accept aid when it’s offered.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams

Deformity / Dismemberment / Paralysis

A dream in which you find yourself deformed in some way is most likely a selfcritical dream; its interpretation will depend upon what body part or body parts are disfigured.

If you find yourself deformed in your dream, in what way do you feel disabled or frightening to others in waking life? Or have you been crippled by an emotional situation and been unable to do anything about it? Has someone in waking life hurt you? A dream of someone else’s deformity may be symbolic of a deformed part of yourself, but it might also be showing you some distasteful part of another person’s personality of which you were previously unaware. A person with a deformity in your dream may represent the trickster archetype mocking your own pretensions, although for Freud it represented a fear of male impotence, and for Jung it was a symbol of the devouring mother. A limp can be a warning from the unconscious of those dangers of pride and ambition that bring humiliation rather than success upon the dreamer.

If you are using crutches in your dream, are you relying on crutches, such as alcohol, nicotine or controlled drugs, in waking life?

Very often dreams of paralysis and numbness may be induced by the dreamer’s arm or leg going to sleep as the result of a trapped nerve.

If this is not the case, dreams of being unable to move (as if rooted to the spot) may be equating paralysis with frigidity; in waking life, the dreamer might suffer from fears of sexual intimacy. Your dream may also be referring to an area of your life in which things have stagnated or not progressed as they should have. This will usually be an emotional paralysis or a feeling of helplessness in a particular situation in your life. For example, you may be caught between a spouse and a lover, or between two possible courses of action. Dismemberment of your body in a dream suggests feelings of powerlessness in waking life. Is some situation tearing you apart or do you need to take your feelings apart?... The Element Encyclopedia
