A 39-year-old female asked:

Can neuropathy be related also for tingling, crawling sensation in head or only for hands and legs?

Possibly: Neuropathy can cause paresthesias or tingling type sensations in the hands and legs. However, you are young for these to be affecting your head or to have sensations of crawling. So, a thorough evaluation by Neurology is appropriate. Then they may determine if there is a neuropathic medication, myofascial release or even possibly an injection that could help alleviate this. Keep us posted.

Diffuse neuropathy: Neuropathy has many caused and usually involves the limbs but many conditions with associated neuropathy can manifest diffusely such as in diabetes.
