Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. The major cause of tingling could be due to O.C.D(obsecessive compulsive disorder) it is an anxity disorder characterised by recurrant disturbing thoughts. So you will be having the feeling of having tingling sensation, continuously.
Of course you have tingling sensation, you train your brain that it is curable and you will never get it back, for this you need to have determination and attending psyiatrists help.
Besides i advise you to follow some non medical procedures to supplement the treatment. They are yoga, meditation, hearing music, reading books, and if interested gardening. These will teach your brain to divert the mind to some thing not related to the problem.
So i eish you to help by your own self, besides medication. thanks for calling.
