You should never ignore widespread tingling or numbness in the body. These are strong indicators that something is wrong. While the numbness or tingling may be bearable, it is important to discover the underlying cause and get it taken care of.
Consider some of the following causes of tingling in the body. Then we will discuss a natural solution.
Causes of Widespread Tingling
- Diabetes – About 3 in 10 cases of neuropathy, particularly in the hands and feet, are caused by diabetes. The sensations may start in the feet and then travel up the legs. It may also begin in the hands and then travel up the arms.
- Nerve Entrapment Syndromes – These syndromes involve the compression of nerves. One common example is carpal tunnel syndrome. Other types of nerve entrapment syndrome are radial nerve palsy, ulnar nerve palsy, and peroneal nerve palsy.
- Vitamin Deficiencies – Without the proper amount of vitamins like B1, B6, B12, E, and Niacin, tingling can result. This is because these vitamins are necessary for proper nerve function.
- Systematic Diseases – Systematic diseases can affect the entire body. Certain diseases in this category attack specific organs of the body. This may result in vascular damage, kidney problems, or liver conditions. These diseases are often autoimmune in nature. Others include chronic pain, inflammation, or problems with connective tissue.
Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of things that can result in numbness or tingling. But this gives you an idea of the types of conditions that cause these symptoms. It is clearly not something to ignore.
A Natural Solution to that Tingling Sensation
An upper cervical chiropractor can get to the primary cause of nerve problems in the body. For many, tingling and other symptoms result from a misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. This puts undue pressure on the brainstem. The entire body is affected as a result.
