Tingling or numbness affecting your feet mayseem like a trivial symptom of no real importance. However, in this tutorial, I will explain whythis symptom may be very important with regard to your health in general and why you shouldnot ignore it. Tingling hands, feet, or hands and feet isan extremely common and bothersome symptom. Such tingling can sometimes be entirely innocentand temporary. For example, it could result from pressure on nerves when your arm is bentunder your head as you fall asleep. Or it could be from pressure on nerves when youcross your legs for too long. In either case, the quot;pins and needlesquot; effect which isusually painless is soon relieved by removing
the pressure that caused it. In many cases, however, tingling in the hands,feet can be severe, occurring at irregular times or continuously day and night. It alsocan accompany other symptoms. such as pain,Â itching, numbness, and muscle wasting. In such cases,tingling may be a sign ofÂ nerve damage. SuchÂ nerve damageÂ is known by s asÂ peripheralneuropathyÂ because it affects nerves distant from theÂ brainÂ and spinal cord, often inthe hands and feet. There are more than 100 different types of peripheral neuropathy.Over time, peripheral neuropathy can worsen, resulting in decreased mobility and even disability.Â
In fact, diabetesÂ is the number one causeof peripheral neuropathy, accounting for well over a third of cases. InÂ diabetic neuropathy,tingling and other symptoms often first develop in both feet and go up the legs, followedby tingling and other symptoms that affect both hands and go up the arms. About twothirdsof people with diabetes have mild to severe forms ofÂ nerve damage. In many cases, thesesymptoms are the firstÂ signs of diabetes. So here is the main point I want to make,tingling and numbness in the feet may be the first signs that you have a serious peripheralneuropathy and that you may have diabetes. Diabetes puts you at risk of heart attack,stroke, kidney failure, blindness and a long
list of other serious complications. So thattingling you have could be your only warning sign of a serious complication developingelsewhere in your body. Don’t ignore this symptom and please get a check up.
