Tingling: Tingling is not an urgent symptom. If you do not have any pain or impairment of function in the related extremity, you can safely wait until it is significantly bothering you. Most tingling is caused by irritation to a nerve. A common example is carpal tunnel syndrome; another example is diabetes with injury to the foot nerves. If its really bothering you, see a doctor for medication to help.

No wait: Tingling can be caused by minor cause to life threatening cause. See your doctor soon.

Difficult to say: Tingling in all the fingertips of both hands can be caused by neurapthy (but this is gradual onset) , by certian medications, and by anxiety with hyperventilation. If it just one hand, then problems with the nerves on one side can be the culprit - carpal tunnel syndrome, other causes of nerve irritation. If it persists you may want to get it looked at.

Muscle spasm: There is a complex of muscles between your eyebrows that can (as with any muscle) have spasms. If this is a persistant problem, you could consider using Botox to "quiet" down the muscle in this location. Botox is actually fda approved for this muscle complex between the eyebrows called the glabella.

People are unique: People differ in their preferences. Hopefully those around them honor their wishes. It can be painful when someone insists on tickling a person who dislikes being touched that way.
