Tingling in arms and legs. Is it nerve related or circulation problem?

Hello When I stay in any position I get tingles, for example when I drive after 5 min my hand will start tingling or if I sit down for a few minutes my legs will get a really light tingling sensation. Is it nerve related, circulation or both? Been happening for a year and seems to be getting a little worse. Just had a EKG and it was normal all my blood work came in normal too in April. 37 years old 5 11 200 lbs. Could it be that I m out of shape. BP 134/ 80.

Welcome to HCM.

This sensation is common if you hold your position for long. If tingling is occurring even while you are active it needs to be evaluated.

Such tingling can sometimes be benign and temporary. For example, it could be the result of sustained pressure on nerves when your arm is crooked under your head as you fall asleep. Or it could be from sustained pressure on nerves when crossing your legs for too long.

Diabetes is one of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy, and should be excluded i advice you to go for sugar tests that is FBS, PPBS.

If they are not within normal limit i advice you to see physician.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
