Question: Tingling in both Feet


 KarenH - Mon Aug 16, 2004 11:49 am

About a week ago my right knee started hurting. Two days ago, both of my feet started tingling slightly and have been constantlty tingling since then. My husband massaged my knee last night and it is better today. However, I still have the tingling in both of my feet. What can be causing the tingling? How long should I wait before seeing a doctor?

Thank you.

User avatar Dear Karen,

Is the tingling going up towards your legs or stable at your feet, is it getting worse, improving or remaining the same?

Is there any other associated weakness in the feet?

If the tingling is boing up to your legs, getting worse and there is associated weakness, you have to see your doctor.

If not, i recommend waiting 7-10 days and then see your doctor.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
