Brief Answer: Dehydration Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query The most common cause for such tingling and numbness after a stomach infection is dehydration. The second cause could be a post viral syndrome. It is not a cause for concern if it has occurred once with spontaneous recovery. However if it occurs again and she also notices weakness of the hand/ arm then please approach your GP for a clinical examination. My suggestions are 1. Keep her well hydrated. let her drink atleast 5 glasses of water a day 2. Let her take multivitamin tablets for 15 days. 3. Check the body temperature twice a day to rule out fever I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you daughter good health Regards
