Tips for Tingling Toes


One of the most fascinating things about the medical world is the realization that every individual can experience symptoms differently than others. While there are many symptoms that are shared across several different types of diseases and conditions, the way that we experience them can vary on an individual basis. When it comes to tingling sensations in our toes, your individual experience is key. Depending on other medical conditions you have, or even your personal threshold for pain and discomfort, your alertness to these symptoms may be dulled -- this is where treatments like Neurogenx come in! 

Causes for tingling toes

There are many reasons you might experience a tingling sensation in your toes, ranging from diabetes to simply being cold. Though diabetes is one of the most common reasons you might experience a painful tingling sensation in your toes, did you know that a vitamin deficiency can also cause toe tingling? Other reasons for tingling sensations in the toes can be caused by various autoimmune disorders, ill-fitting shoes, environmental toxins, alcohol consumption, infection, poor circulation, and kidney failure. Typically, if you experience tingling toes for longer than a day, this can be a cause for concern - especially if you or a family member have a history of any of the previously listed conditions.

What if you have never had any of those conditions, and no one in your family has ever had any of those conditions either? This is an even better reason to get yourself checked out. The best place to start is your trusted podiatrist, Dr. Michele Kurlanski, at Lighthouse Foot and Ankle Center. Through our comprehensive consultations, Dr. Kurlanski will thoroughly examine your feet, ankles, and medical history to determine the best course of action for you.
