Tingling in the feet can be an uncomfortable and disruptive condition to have to suffer with. Many times tingling in the feet can feel like pins and needles. This is generally painless and similar to the sensation of the foot falling “asleep”. The pins and needles sensation is easily corrected by allowing blood flow to the affected area and reducing any pressure that may be restricting the nerves.
In other less common cases, tingling in the feet may be indicative of nerve damage. Nerve damage can arise from intense physical injuries, repetitive physical stress, infections, or disease such as diabetes or arthritis. If your tingling in the feet is constantly reoccurring it may be a good idea to talk to a medical professional at the Pain Stop Clinics. Our experts will help determine the cause of the tingling and create a proper treatment plan for your specific condition.
