What is Causing Numbness and Tingling in my Legs and Feet?

Foot Pain in Center Point AL

Numbness in any part of the body raises concerns about the underlying cause. When it relates to tingling sensations and persists for any length of time that exceeds a simple limb "falling asleep" from poor cut off circulation, it can stem from problems in the back or spine.Back being treated for numbness in feet in Center Point


Common Problems that Cause Numbness and Tingling
Although the specific underlying cause of your discomfort and situation depends on the specific symptoms you exhibit, it often stems from a nerve in the spine. When the tingling and numbness impacts your legs and feet, it means that a nerve in your lower back or spine contributes to the underlying discomfort.

In many cases, the cause of persistent numbness and tingling is tied to sciatica or a herniated disk (also known as "slipped disc") in your lower back. Sciatica refers to a specific pinched nerve. When your body has too much pressure on the sciatic nerve for any reason, it causes a discomfort. While individuals often feel pain from a pinched nerve or a herniated disk, it also causes numbness and tingling in the extremities. Generally, the feeling is similar to a foot falling asleep from poor circulation, but the sensation does not fade after the circulation returns.
