Toes that keep tingling is one of the neuropathy symptoms you should know. Neuropathy is a condition of damaged nerves that can potentially lead to serious complications, especially when it happens as a result of diabetes.
Whereas tingling is one of the sensations that can be experienced, another sign of neuropathy is the inability to feel anything in the affected area. This numbness is concerning because it increases the risk of infection. Besides tingling and numbness, other symptoms of nerve damage including increased pain, “pins and needles” or burning sensations, and an inability to detect temperature changes (hot or cold).
If you experience any of these symptoms in your lower extremities, be sure to schedule an appointment with Dr. Melhuish for a professional diagnosis and treatment plan.
