Tingling feeling in soles of feet when aroused or depressed.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have a question about sensations I get sometimes. When I am aroused, even just thinking about fantasies or whatever, I get a tingling feeling in the soles of my feet, for just a few seconds. And when I am full of sad emotions, I feel the same feeling in my right wrist, although that does not go away until I cry and then it fades away very slowly. What is the cause of this? Thanks!

Hello, Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring

The development of tingling sensation when you are aroused or upset points out to one diagnosis, anxiety.

Anxiety usually causes hyperventilation, this will lead to tingling sensations. There is nothing to be worried about as this is very common.

As tingling is due to hyperventilation, you should learn to control your breathing. When the tingling starts, take slow breaths and try maintaining a normal breathing pattern. You might feel very uneasy when you are trying to control your breathing, but it will subside as hyperventilation goes away.

You should also try to deviate yourself physically, like start walking when you start developing hyperventilation. As this will maintain a good blow to your lungs and will also deviate you mentally. By this your tingling should come under control. If there is no improvement in two weeks, I suggest you go for meditation classes.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions
