Have you ever experienced losing sensation in your upper or lower limbs? Does it feel like pins and needles when you try to move or clench your hands or feet? This type of discomfort is a symptom of numbness, otherwise known as tingling.
Certain positions that put too much pressure on your nerves can reduce blood flow and result in numbness in your upper or lower limbs. Most people experience tingling due to postural habits like a certain sleeping position, sitting on your feet, crossing your legs, or simply sitting or kneeling for prolonged periods. Wearing socks, shoes, or pants that are too tight can also cause tingling in your legs and feet.
Temporary numbness can be relieved by several home remedies such as hot and cold therapy, proper sleep, a balanced diet, and less alcohol intake. Doing a few exercises can also provide relief to your tingling hands or feet. However, long-term numbness may be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and peripheral artery disease.
