Tingling or Numbness in Extremities

Tingling or numbness usually presents in more serious spine conditions. The partial or complete loss of feeling to one or all of your extremities is usually caused by pressure being placed on the corresponding nerve. This pressure can be caused by conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and a host of other conditions.

What Could Be Causing the Tingling or Numbness?

While you will most certainly realize if you are experiencing any tingling or numbness, there are some specifics to look for when evaluating how serious the underlying condition may be:

Did the tingling or numbness present after any back pain or injury?

Has the sensation progressed, or spread?

Have you ever received treatment for a spinal condition?

Have you been experiencing the sensation for more than 24 hours?

If your answer is yes to some of these questions, it may indicate a serious spinal condition.

What is the Right Treatment for Me?

Tingling or numbness can sometimes be a sign of serious spinal nerve compression. The most common treatments depend entirely upon the underlying reasons for compression. That being said, the first step in treatment will always be to alleviate the pressure.
