What does it mean when I cut myself and it is just totally numb? I didn't do it on purpose, really... slipped while I was cutting some wood for a project-- cut my hand open. It was like watching someone else cut themselves. I couldn't feel anything at all, except for the skin spreading apart. I got really dizzy--- so my reaction was normal, but I just didn't feel any pain or stinging at all. Went to the nursing station to get stitches- since it was pretty deep. I'm okay just a bit concerned... I banged my hand off the car door earlier and that hurt- but getting cut didn't for whatever reason.
