Answer
Paresthesia comes from a variety of underlying medical causes and conditions. Some are serious disorders, while others may be not as severe yet chronic, and others transient or passing. Paresthesia refers to a burning or prickling sensation that is usually felt in the hands, arms, legs, or feet, but can also occur in other parts of the body. You need to see a neurologist.
