What causes tingling sensations?

It's driving me crazy!


Answer by  RachelW (932)

Many medications can cause extremities to "fall asleep," leading to those tingling sensations. Anti-epileptic medications (such as Topamax) are particularly known for this. Poor circulation can also cause tingling sensations, as can simply accidentally sitting or resting in a position that cuts of a part of the body from the blood supply.

There are several different reasons. The most common is pins & needles from a lack of oxygenated blood (when it's "asleep).

Unfortunately you haven't provided enough information for me to determine the cause of your issue. Tingling sensations could mean something as simple as poor circulation, or they could mean different things depending on where they are occurring and how long they have been occurring. If it is persisting and upsetting you it might be worth consulting a physician.
