The culprit of that is a hormone known as estrogen. When it fluctuates, it may have impact on our nervous system. Nevertheless, there are also quite a lot of other causes of tingling extremities.
More serious causes include diabetes, thyroid problems, an injury of some nerve, which may happen due to your neck or back injury, or spinal cord injury. Of course, it may also be a consequence of deficiency in some vitamins or electrolytes, or a side effect of taking certain medicines.
As in case of tingling in the left arm, tingling extremities should also be checked by a doctor if they occur frequently and affect your life. You shouldn’t be afraid that your doctor will offer you some serious medical therapy. For sure, he will start with the mildest alternatives as there are quite a lot of solutions to tingling extremities.
For example, if your tingling is caused by hormonal imbalance, it’s highly probable that he will suggest you taking herbal supplements, which can successfully balance your hormones, without the side effects that medicines may cause.
The first group of such supplements is known as phytoestrogen supplements, which contain phytoestrogens. These are compounds obtained from plants, which function the way estrogen does in your organism. When they are used short-term, they can fantastically supplement an estrogen deficiency.
However, they can’t be used for too long as our body can get used to it and won’t produce natural estrogen on its own. The second group of herbal supplements is known as hormone-regulating supplements. They don’t contain hormones, but only regulate and balance natural production of hormones.
No matter what the reason of your tingling is, your doctor for sure will advise you to introduce some healthy habits into your everyday life. For example, if your diet is healthy and varied, you will obtain phytoestrogens from it and you won’t need to take any supplements.
Physical activity is very often the best remedy to all the unpleasant tingling sensations. When our body is flexible, fit, and strong, our hearts functions better and our blood circulates well. Remember, though, that even if you exercise thirty minutes every day, but you keep a poor body posture for the rest of your day, tingling may not go away.
Pay attention to the way you sit, walk, or lift things. As it is possible that you simply repeat some unhealthy movement over and over again and that’s the reason for all the strange tingling sensations. The simplest solutions are often the best ones.
Start changing your bad habits, take care of a healthy body and mind, enjoy your life, and it may turn out that annoying tingling will go away on its own.
