Your Podiatrist Can Treat Your Tingling Feet

It’s common for men and women to schedule visits to My Chicago Foot Expert’s Cook County office, needing to see podiatrist Stavros O. Alexopoulos, DPM, because their feet are tingling and uncomfortable. Are you living with tingling feet? An appointment with your podiatrist is the first step on the road to recovery. With years of specialized training and experience, your podiatrist is a medical specialist – like an ophthalmologist for your eyes or a cardiologist for your heart. Just as you see those doctors when you have a problem with those parts of your body, you should see your podiatrist when your feet, ankles, or lower legs need attention. Podiatrists care for men, women, and children of all ages.

A “pins and needles” sensation is, of course, the most commonly reported feeling associated with tingling feet. Other symptoms include itching, twitching, pain, and numbness. These can lead to difficulty standing, walking, or running. They can even make it hard to wear shoes with ease.

The most common cause of tingling feet is simple pressure on the nerves while sitting or sleeping. This feeling usually resolves very quickly when you change position. But when tingling doesn’t stop quickly, there are many possible causes for your tingling feet. These include poor nutrition, trauma to the feet or spine, neuroma, peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, and circulation issues.

If you are worried about tingling feet, or if you have any other concerns about the health and wellness of your feet, ankles, or lower legs, it’s time to see a board-certified podiatrist like Dr. Stavros O. Alexopoulos. Your podiatrist will conduct a thorough examination concluding in an accurate and specific diagnosis, then work with you to create and implement an effective plan for treatment and any appropriate ongoing care.
