In brief: Many different cause
Ashley, if you are a healthy woman with numbess and tingling in both hands and feet i would seek medical attention as the causes are varied with some of them needing medical attention.
A tumor, pinched nerve, diabetes as well as other causes could be the culprit. If you have not had a good, complete physical in a while it is time to have it done. Your blood workup may help determine the cause.
