I thought my floor had tiny bits of trash on it b/c I thought they were sticking to my barefeet....but I swept and its still doing it....I think my feet feel tingly...why?

Like I said...I thought it was trash I was feeling sticking to my feet...but now I think my feet just feel a tiny bit tingly, like they have been asleep. Its weird. I just noticed it about an hour ago.

Any ideas?

  • Maybe your circulation is bad or your feet fell asleep? That is a tough one. If it persists, bring it up to your doctor.

  • No I am not diabetic.

    Could it be "tired feet" like I walked a lot yesterday.

  • If you did more walking than you're used to, it could be from that. What kind of shoes were you wearing? If they were flip-flops, or another kind of shoe that lacks arch support, that could very well be why.

  • Could be a vitamin B12 deficiency. It can cause nerve damage which can lead to tingling in your hands and feet. If it continues, even if it's just off and on, I would go to the dr for it. They can do blood tests to check and see.

  • Oh, here's a list of other symptoms of B12 deficiency so you can compare:

    If your vitamin B12 deficiency is mild, you may not have symptoms or you may not notice them. Some people may think they are just the result of growing older. As the anemia gets worse, you may:

    Feel weak, tired, and lightheaded.
    Have pale skin.
    Have a sore, red tongue or bleeding gums.
    Feel sick to your stomach and lose weight.
    Have diarrhea or constipation.
    If the level of vitamin B12 stays low for a long time, it can damage your nerve cells. If this happens, you may have:

    Numbness or tingling in your fingers and toes.
    A poor sense of balance.
    Depression.
    Dementia, a loss of mental abilities.
