Question: Tingling feeling in left arm and leg....?? (16 years old)

 xx_fairy_xx - Fri Jun 10, 2005 2:27 am

I have developed a tinging feeling in my left arm and leg, Im worried about what this could be or if its anything serious.

I also don't seem to have any reason for why this should be happening, I don't drink alcohol, smoke, drink any coffee etc. The only known health problem I have it that I am anemic (iron deficiency).

Dear fairy,
This tingling sensation could result from an inflammation of the nerves known as "neuropathy". This could result from several causes, but in your case, taking the iron deficency anemia into consideration, it may be due to nutritional vitamin deficency.
I suggest you visit your doctor for a proper evaluation.
