I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to a stroke. I would like to know if the tingling is persistent or in short periods of time.

In such case suspicions of seizures should be raised. Coming to this point, I recommend performing a brain MRI study. If suspicions of seizures are raised, an EEG would be needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
