Tingly Sensation Of My Feet

I have a tingly sensation on the bottom and top of my feet. Also my ankles and alittle on the top of my feet have what looks like numerous spider veins . When I sit with my feet up, the sensation of tingling improves but the spider veins are there all the time, sometimes brighter and sometimes less noticable. I have not contacted a Dr. at this point. I recently started water aerobics and have noticed that while I exercise my feet feel good.

    Hello and thank you for your question. I would say that the spider veins and tingling sensation are possibly unrelated. The spider veins are a dilation of the superficial veins in our feet and legs. If they are painful and bother you I would recommend seeing a Vascular Surgeon who can discuss laser vein treatments.

    For the tingling, I would see a Podiatrist, as again this may or may not be related. Swimming is a great exercise because it controls excess edema or swelling in the feet and lower legs. In addition you can try elevation of the feet at the end of the day.

    Good luck!
