Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Tingling is mainly an attribute of peripheral nerve fibers dysfunction often from processes that compress them.

The problem may be in your cervical spinal cord, conditions such spondylosis, bone spurs, herniated disc disease, etc. may compress nerves and may cause sensory disturbances.

Blood supply impairment (arteritis) may cause tingling sensation too.

So, get evaluated by your primary care Doctor with the aim of evaluating further these conditions with imaging studies too.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
