Why are my toes tingling?

Toes tingle for a variety of reasons, though neuropathy is the most common. This condition is the result of damage to nerves in your body, usually in your extremities. Typically this causes weakness, numbness, and burning or pins-and-needles sensations in your lower limbs. Many different conditions can contribute to damaged nerves. Perhaps the most well-known and the most common is diabetes. There are, however, other issues that can create tingling toes.

Autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis target the nerves specifically. Extreme vitamin deficiencies, especially vitamin B12, allow your nerves to lose some function. Chronic substance abuse like alcoholism permanently damages nerve tissue. Pressure on or trauma to specific nerves can impair it as well. Inherited disorders, toxins, serious infections, cancer, and a few other problems can all contribute to neuropathy. The most effective way to deal with the tingling is to treat the underlying issues as well as the symptoms.
