The intermittent tingling in lower abdomen needs to be looked for the following causes;
1) The area is supplied by the dorsal or thoracic spine (middle portion of the back). Any pinched nerve because of the bone spur or degenerative disc disease can be responsible for this.
2) Deficiency of vitamin B 12 is another cause which can produce the symptoms.
3) If the diabetic profile like glycosylated hemoglobin and glucose tolerance tests have not been performed, they should be done as diabetic neuropathy is another reason to be ruled out.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
The high blood sugar in diabetics cause nerve damage in long duration, which is termed as diabetic neuropathy and can cause tingling or vibration sensations.
The kicking sensations too can be caused by the pinched nerves in the back.
