tingling feet
My right foot has been tingling continuously for the past week. My left foot also tingles from time to time but not as bad as the right. What could this be? I had this a couple of months ago and I did go to the hospital. The doctor did all sorts of blood tests but ultimately said there was nothing wrong with me. I then went to my gp who did more tests. He also said there was nothing wrong. I even had an HIV test which came out negative. Please help.

Dear Worried,
This is a sign that a nerve is being compressed - either in your back or somewhere in your leg. A neurologist will be able to help.
