Tingling : Tingling in the legs can be caused by decreased inflow of blood through the arteries, decreased outflow of blood through the veins, or problems with the nervous system. You haven't specified your age, sex, or other information, so it's hard to know how likely each of these causes is. However, you have indicated a weight problem, and being overweight does predispose to diabetes. Diabetes, in turn, can cause a condition called peripheral neuropathy that classically involves the hands and feet. It sounds like you should see a doctor and be evaluated. None of the conditions i've mentioned is likely to cause an immediate problem, but over time could cause you to lose your legs or develop blood clots. By the way: if you do get clots, they will not go to your brain; unless you have unusual anatomy, they will instead wind up in your lungs, which can also be pretty bad. ...Read more

It may be associated with a diagnosis called exertional compartment syndrome where the pressure builds up in the compartments of the calf and leads to tingling or numbness in the shin or foot. I would recommend seeing a sports medicine physician to be evaluated. ...Read more

My lower legs and feet start tingling and goin numb in minutes when lying flat keeping me from fallin asleep so I sleep sideways. What could this be?

Pressure on nerves: from the sleep position is most likely at your age. This is not normal, so you should experiment with using pillows under your knees, sleeping on your stomach etc. and also changing sleep position from time to time. If the condition continues or worsens, you should have an examination to be sure that there is not something going on in the spine or in the blood vessels. ...Read more

2 years ago I was on Zyprexa. It caused tingling in my lower legs and feet when walking. Climbing up & downstairs I had leg weakness. Guillain-Barre?

Very Unlikely: The reports of Zyprexa causing Guillan Barre Syndrome a serious neurological condition is highly suspect and unlikely in my opinion.And you are talking of having taken Zyprexa 2 years ago and was never diagnosed with this serious condition and your symptoms of leg weakness and tingling are so non specific.I will say it is highly unlikely.If you have any symtoms now consult a neurologist ...Read more

Sometimes when I ingest large amounts of sugar I get a tingling sensation in my right foot/lower leg. had it since I was a kid. Negative for Diabetes.

Large amounts sugar: Large amounts of sugar can destroy cells. High sugar intake causes high blood sugar levels, or hyperglycemia, is a well-known characteristic of diabetes and obesity, and it is already understood that diabetes patients have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's, where abnormal proteins aggregate to form plaque and tangles in the brain. Not worth continuing. Likely you're having warning signs ...Read more

Lower left back pain, tingling sensation and sometimes pain on left leg, what could be the problem?

Lumbar radiculopathy: Pain and tingling sensation down one leg with associated same sided low back pain is most often cause by a pinched nerve.

For years there's been a tingling sensation and weakness in my right lower part if my leg and foot. What could this be?

Many things: The list of possibilities depends on your medical history and other conditions. I see you've had an EMG/NCV procedure which was unrevealing but if that was a long time ago and since then, you've developed more symptoms such as the weakness maybe EMG could be repeated and would show something. Good blood analysis could also reveal nutritional or other abnormalities. Have you seen a neurologist? ...Read more
