Neuropathy ?: Neuropathy is a comon cause of tingling and numbness to the hands and feet, specially if diabetes is present .
Duration of symptoms is also very important , as well as family history.
Neuro-degenerative disorders must be excluded, if history or physical exam is suggestive.. Vitamin and nutritional deficencies is a rare cause, but possible if an enteropathy is present, or bariatric surgery was done.
