Q What is causing my painful, tingly feet?
The most common reasons for painful, tingly feet are peripheral artery disease and the intermittent claudication associated with it. People who are suffering from these conditions have arteries that become clogged and narrow, which leads to poor blood flow and circulation. When your blood cannot travel through your arteries at a normal pace, you suffer from intermittent claudication, which is characterized by painful, tingly feet.
Some common risk factors for the condition include smoking, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and advanced age. Medications— like aspirin—that prevent blood clots or medical surgeries, are typical treatments for peripheral artery disease and intermittent claudication. They can help reduce both swelling and discomfort.
