Literally numb head from antipsychotics

At my worst period I was taking 3mg Risperdal, 5mg olanzapine...I took that combo for 6 days and but have otherwise been on 3mg Risperdal for 2 years, 1-2mg for 4 years before that.  My entire head is now completely numb (to all feelings) and literally feels numb (scalp especially).  It is physical torture and I am also quite braindead, I just stare at my computer.  Anyone else experience this from antipsychotics?  Is there a way out?

 

I first started becoming numb in 2014 and gradually lost all response to alcohol, and now after taking 3mg Risperdal 5mg olanzapine end of 2016 for 6 days, and also adding remeron I have had this physical numbness to boot.  I was taking fish oil and magnesium for a while but had to stop due to tinnitus.  It has been getting worse it seems and now it is almost unbearable.  Any help is much appreciated.
