Thank you for posting your query.

Tingling and paresthesias are symptoms of neuropathy (nerve disease), and can also be a sign of recovery.

thyroid profile and blood sugar as lack of thyroid hormone and diabetes can cause similar symptoms.

For relief of symptoms, you may take pregabalin capsules.

There is no need to worry at present.
