What Causes Numbness and Tingling in the Feet

Anything that affects the nerves going down the legs and into the feet can cause numbness and tingling in the feet. There may be a mechanical cause such as compression of the nerve, either in the spine or further down in the leg. Neurologic disorders may also affect the nerves, as can a lack of blood supply to the legs. Where there is a lack of blood supply, the nerves don’t have enough energy to transmit their information properly. This results in numbness or abnormal function of the nerves, which manifests as a tingling sensation. Learn more at https://americanendovascular.com/blog/
