When Should a Patient Be Worried About Numbness and Tingling in the Legs

Everybody can experience numbness or tingling. Sometimes when you sit the wrong way and have pressure on the back of your legs for a long time you will experience tingling or numbness. However, if you have numbness in the leg that persists over days, experience a cold sensation in your legs, or notice a temperature difference from one leg to the other, that is more worrisome, and may indicate that something underlying is going on. If this is the case, you should be evaluated by a physician. While it may indicate a need for something as simple as changing your stockings or compression, there are other diseases such as diabetes or peripheral vascular disease that may be causing these symptoms, and these should be evaluated and treated accordingly.
