Anxiety --> higher blood pressure --> move visible blood vessels

Raise hands --> lower blood pressure due to gravity --> less visible blood vessels

Tissues use oxygen in blood leads to red-blue colour change --> blue veins

Numbness as in lack of feeling =lack of oxygen to area, hence receptors for touch switch off, but pain (dull/burning) receptors switch on. This happens transiently all the time as blood pressure readjusts and usually only the pain/tingling effect happens. Anything that disturbs your blood pressure regulation such as anxiety will increase all these things. Numbness (true numbness as in complete lack of ability to feel touch & pain) is, if it occurs, unlikely to be related to anxiety, except in the cases of psychosomatic illness where very very extreme emotion can cause paralysis, numbness, etc.
