Tingling In Both Arms And Legs
Stressed out: Does it feel like your shoulders are pulled up almost to your ears? I have found that some people get stress build up in their shoulders, neck and upper back. This also goes hand in hand with clenching your teeth. A stress reduction protocol and massage may help the initial pain. The tight muscles may be squeezing the nerve to cause tingling.
