Hello,

Thanks for the additional information.

Your symptoms are suggestive of peripheral neuropathy.

The peripheral nerve irritation can cause tingling & numbness of toes & fingers.

The cervical spine disease can cause these symptoms.

Stroke usually causes motor symptoms. Sensory abnormalities although uncommon, but can be seen with possible stroke as well.

Other possibilities can be dehydration & electrolyte deficiency, recent viral infection.

Systemic diseases like diabetes, hypothyroidism, vitamin B12 deficiency can also produce these symptoms.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
