At a certain point in your life, you may experience numbness or tingling sensations in certain parts of your body. This could lead to a medical professional prescribing medicine, applying shots to the affected area, and/or suggesting surgery. While these treatment options may reduce numbing and tingling, they may also cause more serious complications and longer recovery.
Many people compare the sensations as the feeling you get when your leg falls asleep when sitting down too long or lots of tiny needles poking at the area. These feelings of sensation are symptoms that can occur for many different reasons. The top three reasons patients could be feeling this numbness and tingling is from trauma, a metabolic disorder, or a neurological event.
