While not a common symptom of menopause and postmenopause, tingling extremities is an unsettling and unexpected symptom some women experience. This tingling can affect any part of the body though it commonly affects the feet, legs, arms, and hands. Tingling extremities during menopause are usually the result of fluctuations in hormones.
Fortunately, most cases of tingling extremities during menopause and postmenopause do not indicate that something more serious is going on. Nonetheless, women who are experiencing tingling extremities and those who are curious about this menopausal symptom are wise to learn more about its causes and treatment.

In most cases, tingling extremities experienced during menopause are the result of natural hormone fluctuations. Estrogen, one of the primary hormones in flux during menopause, has a complex effect on the central nervous system. When this hormone is thrown off balance during menopause, it can affect the nervous system, producing symptoms like tingling extremities.

While estrogen fluctuations are a prime cause of tingling extremities during menopause, other medical conditions can trigger tingling in the hands, feet, arms and legs.
