Is it natural and correct to say I can't feel my fingerst meaning my fingers are numb? For example:

I guess I had better go to the doctor. I can't feel my fingers at all.

If it doesn't sound right, what would be the most natural way to communicate the meaning?


I can't feel my fingers is completely natural and correct, with or without the final at all.

We might equally say, My fingers have gone numb.

If a doctor asked, "Can you feel your hand?" we might say simply, My fingers are numb. It sounds slightly calmer and more matter-of-fact than the sentences above.
