There is always a possibility of paresthesia from some insecticides. Actually, it's usually the "carrier" of the insecticide that causes the problem. Insecticides are often waxy, odorless solids that have to be dissolved in a carrier to be used by the exterminator. This might be the problem. I feel it myself with certain insecticides. But the one that affects me, might not affect you in the same way. It's complicated... No, paresthesia is not generally "dangerous," and it normally goes away in a few hours or so.

Tell the exterminator, because of that, you would much prefer him using roach baits. I have found that Advion roach bait works well, although there are several others that I like, depending on exactly where and what I'm doing.
