Hello Sylfana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Tingling or also known as paresthesia in the feet can be caused by various possibilities, the following are some of them:

Pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in the leg, for example, because you sit with your leg bent for too long or hang your leg for too long
Impaired flow of blood vessels in the legs, for example due to atherosclerosis in the peripheral blood vessels
Disorders of the nerves to the feet that come out of the spine (radiculopathy), for example due to pressure on the spinal cord due to a herniated nucleus pulposus, a tumor, bleeding, or infection in the spine that causes pinching of the nerves, narrowing of the spinal joints (spinal stenosis) , etc.
Peripheral neuropathy or damage to the peripheral nerves that can occur due to many possibilities such as diabetes, excessive alcohol consumption, autoimmune diseases, drug side effects, vitamin deficiency, kidney and liver disorders, etc.

If indeed these symptoms occur continuously, you should check with a neurologist for further evaluation to find the cause. The doctor may order additional tests such as blood tests, blood levels of vitamins and electrolytes, EMG (electromyogram), X-rays, CT scans, or MRI of the spine. The therapy given will adjust to the cause that is found. While the cause is not clear, you can try to do the following:

Avoid excessive repetitive movements in the legs
Rest your feet for a while if you feel tingling when standing or walking
Do not sit in one position for too long, do muscle stretching movements, especially in the waist and pelvis area, from time to time when you have to sit for a long time
Don't sit hanging legs
You can try soaking your feet in warm water
Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
Eat foods that are highly nutritious, especially eat foods that are high in B vitamins and folate

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
