By maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, we can avoid discomfort such as the tingling sensation.

Do you know paresthesia? It is the name given to the tingling on the skin, that sensation that an insect is walking through the epidermis. If you notice this with a certain frequency, we advise you to go to the doctor, as it can be a symptom of important diseases.

Experts from the National Institute of Accidental Neurological Disorders ( NINDS ) indicate that at some point, we have all experienced transient paresthesias, that is, a tingling sensation. “It appears when sustained pressure is exerted on a nerve and the sensation quickly fades once the pressure is relieved.”

An example of this is when we have fallen asleep in an uncomfortable position, and a part of our body has fallen asleep, or when we sit on the floor with our legs crossed for a long time.

Likewise, they indicate that a transient paresthesia is not the same as a chronic paresthesia, which is usually a symptom of an underlying neurological disease.

Causes of tingling skin.

Here are some possible causes of skin tingling. Take them into account when discussing your discomfort with your doctor.

Bad circulation.

Poor circulation can be the source of tingling and other symptoms. To be able to treat it properly, it is best to go to your doctor and follow his instructions once he gives you the diagnosis and treatment for your case.

MedlinePlus experts comment that tingling can appear from “a lack of blood supply to an area, for example, hardening of the arteries, frostbite or inflammation of a vessel.”

Restless Leg Syndrome.

In general, this syndrome usually hides a kidney disease, anemia or diabetes that translates into a neurological condition. The brain feeds on blood, so when it is not of sufficient quality, the muscle can suffer in some way. One of them is to provoke that sensation to the point of perceiving that your limbs are going numb.

Lack of minerals and vitamins.

Vitamins and minerals are essential to nourish muscles and all types of tissues. Therefore, when we have a deficit in this regard, we can notice a special sensitivity.

In addition, by lacking nutrients, they are also depleted earlier than usual.  Consequently, this fatigue materializes in tingling on the skin. Again, we see how the body rebels when it detects a lack.

Can tingling skin be cured?

The tingling sensation may go away on its own. However, exercising can be very beneficial in reducing the frequency of its appearance. We can choose to walk 30 minutes a day (at least) or practice a specific activity, such as the one that we are going to comment on below.


Gravity is an obstacle to getting blood everywhere, particularly when it travels upwards and horizontally. Yoga poses make it easier to move in these directions, as the body changes position.

In addition, it is not an aggressive activity, so it does not pose any risk to us, as long as we respect the technique of the movements.


Swimming is one of the best exercises out there, but especially for circulation, since the whole body moves. It is a low-impact sport that raises your heart rate and stimulates blood movement.

In this sense, we activate the circulatory system and ensure that our body feeds in the best way.

Increase consumption of vitamins and minerals.

All-natural foods give us something positive. Consequently, you do not have to resort to complexes or supplements. What you need is in the food, you just have to know how to choose the ingredients of your recipes well:

  • Liver.
  • Eggs.
  • Vegetables.
  • Fatty fish.

We want to emphasize this matter. It is true that there are certain basic elements that must be given in any diet, but it is also true that it is more desirable to adapt it to our demands.

In this sense, it is good that you think of it as a medicine. What do you need for your body to function well and what food can provide it? If you take this approach, your life will improve. You will start to eat in a much smarter way and you will have greater well-being.

The body always rewards good habits.

If you combine exercise with a good diet, the tingling in the skin will disappear or improve, but remember, visit the doctor if you feel this phenomenon frequently. Then he combines his treatment with these measures. The collaboration of both therapies will bring considerable relief.

In addition, all of them serve to keep the body young, since they act as great barriers for the intrusion of bacteria and microbes.
