In brief: Many causes
There are many different causes of numbness and tingling.
These can range from rapid heavy breathing (hyperventilation) or anxiety to neurological problems with the nerves (neuropathy), spinal cord (myelopathy), or brain. Discuss your specific situation with your primary doctor and consider seeing a neurologist.
