Mild neuropathy?: Sometimes irritated nerves cause tingling, normally in the toes and feet, sometimes in the hands. Tingling or burning is a symptom of neuropathy, but it does not clinch the diagnosis. High blood sugar and deficient vitamin B12 are common causes of a symptom like this. Be sure you are checked out for causes of neuropathy.

Various answers: Some medications cause tingling (topirimate), some food additives (MSG), bodily chemical imbalance, poor blood flow, use of illicit drugs (cocaine, meth), consequence of smoking, and perhaps early sign of peripheral nerve disorder.
