General or Other | Cardiology | Tingle (Symptom)


Tingling or numbness is an abnormal sensation that can occur anywhere in the body, but often felt in the fingers, hands, feet, and arms.


There are many possible causes among which include: (i) sitting or standing in the same position for too long, (ii) damage to any part of the body (neck injury can cause numbness anywhere along your arm or hand, while a low back injury can cause numbness or tingling in the back of the leg), (iii) pressure on the nerves of the spine, such as a herniated disc, (iv) pressure on peripheral nerves, (v) shingles or herpes zoster infection or (vi) a lack of blood supply to an area (for example, of atherosclerosis or freezing).
