It could be: Tingling in the feet is common. 60% of tingling (usually both feet) comes from peripheral nerve (nerves in the foot) problems due to diabetes or another cause. One-sided tingling could be due to nerve compression from a spinal nerve in the back or even lower down in the leg. Vitamin deficiencies, e.g. B12 can cause, along with liver/kidney/thyroid disease or toxins such as alcohol. Seek evaluation
