Brief Answer: Neuropathy. Detailed Answer: Hello, Tingling and numbness is more likely due to neuropathy. Presence of occasional skin color change and dizziness is significant in this context. In this situation I would advise my patient to check for high blood pressure and blood pressure changes during posture changes. I would also order blood sugar test to rule out diabetes. Besides, I would order cardiovascular evaluation. I would urge you to visit a cardiologist who can tailor the aforementioned test. Hope the answer helps you. Let me know if there is any clarification. Regards
