Numbness & Tingling Is a Sign That Something Is Wrong

Donít dismiss numbness and tingling in your foot thinking itís just asleepóespecially if it doesnít go away!
Have you been experiencing numbness and tingling in your legs, arms, feet, or fingers? Numbness and tingling in these areas usually indicates a longer standing problem affecting the sensory portion of the nerves. If you suffer from this condition, itís important to have your symptoms checked out right away.

The issue has most likely been occurring for much longer than you have been experiencing the symptoms and can be quite dangerous if left untreated. The chiropractors at Chiro-Technology, located in Holt, MI, can determine whether the issue stems from actual damage to a nerve or is referred from the nerves. Our approach will get to the root of the problem so your body can function properly again. Schedule your appointment at (517) 694-4972 to learn more.

Causes of Numbness & Tingling

Though often felt in the feet and hands, numbness and tingling can occur anywhere and be caused by a number of different things. Such symptoms can even be a result of sitting or standing in one position for an extended period of time. Other causes of numbness and tingling include

  • Herniated Disc
  • Animal / Insect Bite
  • Some Medications
  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency
  • Seizure
  • Stroke
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple Sclerosis

At best, a medication youíre taking is causing a tingling sensation in your hands or feet. At worst, numbness and tingling could be indicative of a bigger problem such as a stroke, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis.

When Should You Seek Treatment?

If you are experiencing numbness and tingling, you should see a medical professional if:
  • The numbness and tingling persists.
  • You experience sudden weakness or canít move certain parts of your body.
  • Your speech gets slurred or you have trouble speaking.
  • You have difficulty seeing or walking.
  • The numbness and tingling gets worse as you walk.

We canít stress the importance of this enough: donít dismiss numbness and tingling as nothing. While a tingling arm may just be "asleep", many times it can also indicate nerve damage. In some cases, such symptoms are early signs of a stroke.
