• Peripheral
  • In older individuals, paresthesia is often the result of poor circulation in the limbs (such as in peripheral vascular disease), most often caused by atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque within artery walls, over decades, with eventual plaque ruptures, internal clots over the ruptures and subsequent clot healing but leaving behind narrowing of the artery openings or closure, both locally and in downstream smaller branches. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • Joint conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome are common sources of paresthesia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients
  • Additionally, the study found that patients voiced a preference for the new technology over SCS, and that they experienced a reduction in, or absence of, paresthesia when receiving Burst stimulation. (painweek.org)
  • vitamin
  • Because of this, paresthesia can also be a symptom of vitamin deficiency and malnutrition, as well as metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism. (wikipedia.org)
  • injury
  • Stroke survivors and those with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may experience paresthesia from damage to the central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Results
  • Most pressure-induced paraesthesia results from awkward posture, such as engaging in cross-legged sitting for prolonged periods of time. (wikipedia.org)
  • The results from their analysis seemed to indicate that 4% local anesthetics had a higher incidence of causing paresthesia, an undesirable temporary or permanent complication, after the injection. (wikipedia.org)
