Why are my lower legs tingling when I wake up?
Feb. 19, 2023

Tingling sensations in the lower legs when waking up can have various causes. Some possible reasons include:

  1. Poor circulation: Inadequate blood flow to the lower legs due to sitting or standing for long periods or crossing legs while sitting can lead to tingling sensations.
  2. Nerve compression: Sitting or sleeping in a position that compresses the nerves in the lower legs can cause tingling sensations.
  3. Restless leg syndrome: This is a condition where people experience an uncomfortable sensation in the legs and an urge to move them, particularly at night.
  4. Vitamin deficiency: Deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamin B12 or folate can cause peripheral neuropathy, a condition where the nerves in the legs are damaged.
  5. Diabetes: People with diabetes can experience nerve damage in their legs, which can lead to tingling sensations.
  6. Other health conditions: Certain health conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or peripheral artery disease, can cause tingling sensations in the legs.

If the tingling sensation in your lower legs persists or is accompanied by other symptoms, it is recommended that you see a healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
