Q What are treatments for tingling in the feet?
Treatment for tingling in the feet first requires a proper diagnosis thru an examination and questioning on your medical health. This helps to make an accurate diagnosis so treatment can be done. If the peripheral nerve cells have not been destroyed, there is the possibility they have the capability to regenerate.
Many of the acquired causes of neuropathy can be improved with treatment. Treatments for diabetics include good control of blood sugar; people with vitamin deficiencies can benefit with vitamin supplements. Smoking should be stopped and exercise programs should be instituted. If the cause is from nerve compression(s), then surgery to decompress the nerves is needed.
