Can tingling in the feet be temporary?

Yes it is possible.  When there is pressure on the nerve, which can occur when you cross your legs for an extended period of time, this can cause the nerve to cause pins and needles or tingling or numbness when you get up on your foot.  When the pressure is relieved, the symptoms may go away and be temporary.  Full sensation may return.


If the pressure becomes constant or prolonged, the symptoms may increase and become a troublesome situation.


If you are having funny sensations in your feet or legs come into the office for an examination and evaluation of your nerves which could be affecting you.  Dr. Danciger can evaluate the different nerves of the lower extremities and determine which, if any are causing the problem.  760-568-0108
