Understanding the Symptoms of Nerve Compression
There are a number of conditions that can lead to a ‘tingling’ sensation, including disc problems such as bulged or herniated discs, sciatica, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome (among others). As a symptom of any one of these disorders, tingling is usually accompanied by numbness, and is most often the result of compression of the nerves.
The first step in eradicating tingling is to pinpoint the exact disorder that is leading to this unsettling symptom. Tingling should be viewed as a warning sign that a greater problem exists. Once the caused of tingling is determined, a treatment plan designed to address the larger condition can be designed and carried out.
