Numbness & Tingling Sensations San Ramon
Sometimes described as a “pins and needs” sensation, numbness and tingling are usually transient paresthesia. However, prolonged or chronic numbness and tingling can signify severe nerve damage within the peripheral nervous system.
Many people experiencing numbness and tingling also experience weakness in the affected area, commonly the legs, feet, hands, and arms. The loss of feeling in the legs and feet with the accompanying weakness can result in a loss of balance and frequent falling.
What Can Cause Numbness & Tingling Sensations?
When numbness and tingling occur, it can be caused by several factors, such as sitting or standing in a certain position or wearing tight-fitting clothing for an extended period. These things can put pressure on nerves and blood vessels, resulting in the temporary loss of feeling. When it comes to chronic numbness and tingling, the cause is much more complicated. Typically neurological conditions or nerve damage are the underlying causes of these symptoms.
Peripheral neuropathy is a nerve damage condition associated with numbness and tingling sensations. Diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, alcoholic liver damage, some medications for hypertension, heart disease, cancer, HIV or AIDS, alcoholism, and antibiotics can all lead to peripheral neuropathy.
