Tingling: Widespread tingling sensations, if persistent, should be evaluated by a neurologist. Possibilities include polyneuritis, demyelinating disorder such as multiple sclerosis, toxic reaction or deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, vitamin b12 deficiency or electrolyte imbalance. Appropriate tests will be ordered.
