Thanks for posting your query.

Tingling occurs when nerve fibres are tiggered.Such tingling can sometimes be benign and temporary.

Tingling may be a sign of nerve damage, which can result from causes as varied as traumatic injuries or repetitive stress injuries, bacterial or viral infections, toxic exposures, and systemic diseases such as diabetes.

I suggest you to consult your doctor for a detailed examination and further management according to that.

Wishing you good health
