Tingling is also called paresthesias. These symptoms can arise from various areas in the brain, spinal cord, nerve roots or peripheral nerves. Your neurologist should perform tests to try and localize your symptoms to the neuroanatomical location. If no better explanation exists, it is certainly possible that white matter T2 hyperintensities in the corona radiata and centrum semiovale are causal.
