Detailed answer....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Such types of tingling feelings in legs or sometimes arms also can be caused by various reasons. These reasons could be just benign and temporary and sometimes chronic and due to some underlying disease process. 
In general,the most common causes for such type of tingling (peripheral  neuropathy ) is due to....
Diabetes
Alcoholism
Lack of VIT B6 and VIT B12.
I would advise you to start taking a multivitamin tablet and get tested for above mentioned causes by consulting your doctor.
Hopefully things get resolved soon. In case problem increases,then you would need to consult a physician and get thoroughly evaluated.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
