The term paresthesia refers to an anomaly in the perception of sensory, thermal and tactile stimuli. It can affect different parts of the body for a shorter or longer duration.

Tingling, itching, tickling, itching, feeling of being stung by pins without actually having any stimulation in this sense are among the ways in which paresthesia presents itself. The causes for which the central or peripheral nervous system is affected by this disorder are different. It could in fact be the symptom of other diseases, such as anxiety, amyloidosis, cervical arthrosis, atherosclerosis, panic attacks, headache, dyslipidemia, ebola, migraine, disc herniation , chilblains, herpes zoster, stroke, inflammation of the trigeminal nerve, diabetic foot, Paget's disease, poliomyelitis, multiple sclerosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, Sjögren's syndrome, cancer of salivary glands, varicose veins, traumas and burns, just to name a few.

Given the large number of possible linked illnesses it is important to consult your doctor if you are subject to episodes of paresthesia. As for the cure, it depends on the cause that causes the disorder. Depending on the case, therefore, specific interventions are used.

One of the most common manifestations of paresthesia is tingling in one hand or both, which is sometimes accompanied by altered finger sensitivity, cold or warm hands, tiredness, numbness, tingling and pain. If located and on a limb alone it could be tied by an incorrect and repeated gesture that requires an anomalous hand posture. If instead it affects both hands and is persistent it could be caused by a circulatory problem. In any case it is good to talk to your doctor.
