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

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.

What can cause tingling in both lower arms and legs? NOT hands and feet. Persistent for 3 weeks. Also when sitting or resting. No loss of sensation.

Hyperventilation (breathing too fast) can cause tingling too. ...Read more
