What do abdominal bloating and tingling sensation in the legs indicate?

Do not know where to begin.....have had major stomach protruding for several months, pins & needles feeling in feet up to knees, numbness/tingling in legs&feet which get worse when I go to bed, as does the pins and needles feeling. Also get same feelings in hands and usually left arm. Sorry, got to final page and do not have money to pay. So embarrassed & sorry. My conditions have me unable to work & i am a single mom so i can not afford anything. Thanks anyhow.

Hi,

It could be ascites that is fluid build up in the stomach. The tingling and numbness point towards peripheral neuropathy. I advise you to start vitamin B12 tablets and pregabalin for the tingling but for the abdomen we need to get it checked out by doing an ultrasound to rule out where the actual problem is.

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