In Texas, it’s also full of comfortable weather before the hot days of summer roll around. It’s a great time to enjoy being active outdoors. Just be careful if you develop tingling, pins-and-needles sensations in your lower limbs. Not only is this uncomfortable, it can be a sign of bigger problems. Tingling toes can be caused by many different things, and identifying your cause can help you treat it.

Taking care of tingling toes does mean identifying the underlying problem so it can be treated. As with any potential nerve issues, the sooner the problem is dealt with, the better it is for your feet.
