How to Stop Tingling

By Thomas Beckwith

Whether you suffer from a nerve condition, diabetes, or simply a foot that fell asleep, you may feel an irritating tingling that won't stop. This could be due to a nutritional imbalance or oxygen deprivation. Or you may need to shift your weight to correct poor circulation in your legs. If your tingling is due to a chronic condition, you should treat that before you try out remedies for specific symptoms.

Nutritional Treatments for Tingling

Take vitamin supplements. According to DoctorNDTV, vitamin B12 tablets, in particular, can make up for a common nutritional deficiency that leads to tingling.

Avoid fennel. According to Natural Home Remedies, this plant, which helps diabetics lower their blood sugar levels, can diminish your blood flow and cause tingling and numbness in large doses.

Drink herbal tea. Hot herbal tea gets your blood flowing and stimulates your nerves.

Eat spinach. Spinach spurs cleansing of your blood, which prevents impurities from affecting your nerves.

Drink water. Water kick starts your metabolism and carries nutrients to every part of your body—including the affected area.

Exercise and Medical Treatments

Take slow, deep breaths. If oxygen deprivation is the cause of the tingling, you may be able to treat it with breathing exercises.

Massage the tingling area. According to Cure-Back-Pain.org, this stimulates your nerves and can help restore proper circulation.

Remove any pressure on the affected area. Any heavy weight—such as a guitar resting on your thigh—will press on your nerves and can lead to numbness and tingling.

Get an MRI. You may have a brain condition that contributes to malfunctioning nerves.
