Since thursday (3 days ago), i have intermittent numbness over my whole body. predominantly legs, pelvic area and head. similar to limbs falling asleep. i can still feel touch and move normally, but the sensation is very removed?

Not numb: This may be more of a tingling or pins and needles sensation, and since it's generalized I would investigate the possibility of toxicity or deficiencies of calcium, magnesium or a type of peripheral neuropathy. Hyperventilating or panic disorder is also a cause of such symptoms. Discuss this with your physician so evaluation and ordering of appropriate tests can be done.
