Tingling or Numbness in Extremities

Spinal conditions left untreated can lead to tingling or numbness of arms or legs. This could be either complete or partial. This corresponds to the affected spinal nerve.

How Do I Know if I have Tingling or Numbness in Extremities

While you will most certainly realize if you are experiencing any tingling or numbness, there are some specifics to look for when evaluating how serious the underlying condition may be.

Did the tingling or numbness present after any back pain or injury?

Has the sensation progressed, or spread?

Have you ever received treatment for a spinal condition
Have you been experiencing the sensation for more than 24 hours?

If your answer is yes to some of these questions, it may indicate a serious spinal condition.
