do fire ant bites cause nubness?

Strange question: Unless you received numerous stings by some potent ants i would not think so. You may not really have numbness but a strange alteration of sensation called parasthesia. This is very possible as ant bites cause release of chemical irritants as your bodies defense mechanism which are capable of causing a parasthesia.
