In brief: Possibly
With no other information provided the on/off numbness may be nothing but it could indicate anything from anxiety, vascular or neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis or connective tissue diseases.
If you have not had these symptom eveluated please contact you physician. If you have a physician that has seen you for a long time he would be the best one to determine the problem.
