Tingling is not really a physical problem or illness but rather it is a kind of symptom of some underlying issues. Usually one experiences the tingling sensation when there is numbness or stiffness in the muscles. This could be temporary problem. However, if one continues to get this tingling sensation over a particular period of time, it is best to consult with a doctor.

HOW IS TINGLING TREATED?
Successful treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis and treatment of the underlying cause of the tingling. As long as the peripheral nerve cells have not been killed, they have the ability to regenerate. Although no treatments are available for inherited types of peripheral neuropathy, many of the acquired types can be improved with treatment. For example, good blood sugar control in diabetes can slow the progression of diabetic neuropathy, vitamin supplementation can correct peripheral neuropathy in people with vitamin deficiencies.
